MAZEPPA by Tchaikovsky
"If it at first it seemed a little foolhardy to mount such a big work on a small scale, any doubts were quickly laid to rest right from the opening women's chorus. You could just sit back, forget the spectacle and concentrate on Tchaikovsky's luscious vocal writing."

The opera is based on the life of Florence Nightingale, a British nurse who was a transformative social reformer and statistician best known as the founder of modern nursing. Canadian Composer Timothy Sullivan and Librettist Anne McPherson present this towering figure during the turbulent times of the Crimean War, and the pestilence and poor public health conditions of the mid-19th century.
