Widely renowned for fueling the resurrection of Handelís operas, City Opera continues its exploration of the Baroque by presenting the New York premiere of Georg Philipp Telemannís 1726 opera Orpheus. Rediscovered only in the late 20th century, this inventive score showcases the composerís progressive spirit and vivid imagination.



The tri-lingual libretto in German, French, and Italian features text drawn from operas by Handel and Lully and offers a unique twist on the Orpheus myth, focusing on the character Orasia, Queen of Thrace, whose jealousy brings about the destruction of Orpheus and Eurydice.



Debut artist Daniel Teadt sings the title role in this new production staged at El Museo del Barrio (1230 Fifth Avenue between 104th and 105th Streets). Performed in German, French, and Italian with English supertitles.

BWW Review: Love PRELUDE TO A KISS at 2nd Story Theatre
by Larry O'Brien - Nov 25, 2016

With PRELUDE TO A KISS, the current offering at 2nd Story Theatre in Warren, RI, playwright Craig Lucas came up with a realistically magical take on the Hollywood formula, boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl, boy-gets-girl back. Apparently this theme predates even Hollywood: on the way home from the theater I listened to Monteverdi's seventeenth century opera, L'Orfeo, based on the even older story of Orpheus, in which boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl, but oops. In this PRELUDE TO A KISS, which 2nd Story bills as a modern day fairy tale, elderly 'wedding crasher' (F. William Oakes) kisses the bride, Rita, (Lara Hakeem) and their souls exchange, which turns a perfect wedding into a white-knuckled flight of doubt and regret. All this leaves the brave but bewildered groom, Peter, (David Sackel) to reverse the curse armed only with the power of love and, eventually, the assistance of the persona-switched bride and crasher. Got all that? (more...)
