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."

SAMUEL BARBER
VANESSA

Sunday, January 23, 2022

An American opera focused on three generations of women, who confront society's intrusions into their secluded world. Vanessa is a high voltage drama of exquisite character detailing. Samuel Barber and Gian-Carlo Menotti explore the Gothic darkness of a Northern Land with the bright high romanticism of a new world order.
