2021-2022 Operas within Driving Distance

September 11: Rossini, Tancredi

September 11:  Rossini, Tancredi
This is Rossini's opera with the hit song Di tanti palpiti, which you will hear in Part II.

September 4. Jean-Philippe Rameau: Hippolyte et Aricie

September 4.  Jean-Philippe Rameau:  Hippolyte et Aricie
Rameau's 1733 opera returned to the repertory in Paris in 1908 and has been revived consistently since. This is an unusual production, updated to an undetermined time. Sylvie Brunet-Grupposo is Phedre and Elsa Benoit is Aricie in this picture.

August 28. Wagner: Parsifal

August 28.  Wagner:  Parsifal
Redemption aided by the innocent fool is a theme that occurs over the centuries
in every art form. Here is a recent performance of Wagner's version.

August 21. Anton Rubinstein: The Demon

August 21.  Anton Rubinstein:  The Demon
This opera was a favorite in Russia before the Russian Revolution, and every major Russian bass and baritone recorded arias from this opera, including Dmitry Hvorostovsky. Can the demon be reconciled with Heaven ?

August 14. Massenet: Manon

August 14. Massenet: Manon
The abbé Prévost's l’Histoire du Chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut served as inspiration for Massenet’s Manon; a portrait of the French Regency era. Manon (Pretty Yende) steers a course, escaping the convent only throw herself headlong into a passionate, yet self-destructive love affair with Des Grieux (Benjamin Bernheim).
