Ciao, Opera Mavens. We now have an opera designed originally for a cell phone (not kidding). It’s a very Millennial thing, only 11 minutes long, and only slightly raunchy. It’s called Broken Connection (The Tinder Opera).
Two rarities are currently out there, both streamed live this month from Culture Box:
Verdi’s Jerusalem, l’Opera Royal de Wallonie, Mar 23, 2017.
Monteverdi’s Le retour d”Ulisse dans sa patrie, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Mar 13, 2017, with Rolando Villazon (Merola 1998).
Two new offerings from The Opera Platform are coming up on Apr 1 and 2.
Donizetti’s Lucretia Borgia from Palau de les Arts in Valencia, hometown of the Borgia family, 10am Apr 1.
Mussorgsky’s Sorochintsy Fair, Komische Opera Berlin, 10am Apr 2.
