SFCM Opera Presents Double Bill
The short, one-act opera, Mavra, highlights Igor Stravinsky's early flirtations with neoclassicism, a period which saw the composer produce other popular works such as Pulcinella and Symphony of Psalms. As Mavra looks to the past in both music and narrative, Henry Purcell's Dido and Aeneas does the same. A Russian iconoclast reflects on his heritage and an English master takes on Greco-Roman mythology.
