Read an _Opera News _"article ": Cardillac.


Cardillac is a celebrated artist, a goldsmith whose work is in demand by the wealthy and fashionable. The public’s desire for his work is no match for his obsessive need to be reunited with his treasured creations; he will go to any length to get them back. Sanford Sylvan, who last performed with Opera Boston in 2003’s Candide, plays the title role in this suspenseful psychological drama.

_Cardillac _is based on a short story by E.T.A. Hoffmann about a goldsmith who obsessively loves his creations above all else and cannot bear to be parted from them; he murders the purchasers to be reunited with his art. It marks Opera Boston’s return to the European modern period; two of the company’s greatest critical and box-office successes have been Weill’s _The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny _(1929-30) and Shostakovich’s _The Nose _(1927-28).
