Description

Music by Giuseppe Verdi

Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave

Conductor: Michel Singher  

Director: David F. Ostwald  

This late Verdi piece, written right before Don Carlo, boasts perhaps the most famous Verdi overture and plenty of memorable arias, ensembles and choral highlights, in a dramatically compelling and dynamic score.

About the Ticket Supplier: West Bay Opera

Performing both the familiar and the adventurous, West Bay Opera seeks to please and challenge singers and audiences with three productions per season, one each in October, February, and May. The repertoire includes standard popular works, lesser-known operas and operettas, and occasionally operas by modern composers. Some of West Bay Opera’s greatest successes result from undertaking formidable artistic challenges. Past accomplishments include Bellini’s rarely-performed Norma, Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin in the original Russian, and Wagner’s Der Fliegende Holländer. The principal consideration is always to give talented young opera singers an opportunity to perform challenging roles and, in turn, to give audiences the pleasure of hearing these singers on their way to fame.
