BWW Review: ALCINA at Santa Fe Opera BWW Review: ALCINA at Santa Fe Opera
by Maria Nockin on July 31, 2017 in Albuquerque

George Frideric Handel composed the opera seria, ALCINA, for a 1735 premiere at London's Covent Garden. Handel's anonymous librettist based his text on Riccardo Broschi's 1728 book for L'ISOLA DI ALCINA. Three years following its 1735 run, ALCINA was revived but after that it fell dormant until the twentieth century. On July 29, 2017, Santa Fe Opera premiered a co-production of ALCINA with the National Opera of Bordeaux and the Teatro Real of Madrid. (more...)

BWW Review: THE GOLDEN COCKEREL at Santa Fe Opera BWW Review: THE GOLDEN COCKEREL at Santa Fe Opera
by Maria Nockin on July 29, 2017 in Albuquerque

The Golden Cockerel was Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's last opera. He wrote it in 1905 as a satire on the Russian government of the time. As with many political satires, the libretto that Vladimir Belsky based on Pushkin's poem THE TALE OF THE GOLDEN COCKEREL can still make some points over one hundred years later. On July 28, 2017, Santa Fe Opera presented THE GOLDEN COCKEREL in a production by Paul Curran conducted by Emmanuel Villaume. (more...)

BWW Review: THE (R)EVOLUTION OF STEVE JOBS Sells Out at Santa Fe Opera BWW Review: THE (R)EVOLUTION OF STEVE JOBS Sells Out at Santa Fe Opera
by Maria Nockin on July 23, 2017 in Albuquerque

On July 22, 2017, Santa Fe Opera presented the world premiere of Mason Bates and Mark Campbell's opera THE (R)EVOLUTION OF STEVE JOBS. The new piece was co-commissioned by Santa Fe, Seattle, and San Francisco Operas. Director Kevin Newbury used a great deal of new technology in telling Jobs' story. In eighteen short scenes, a prologue and an epilogue, he covered important events in Steve's life by touching on specific dates in the sixties, seventies, eighties, nineties and early twenty-first century. Since there is no intermission in this ninety-minute piece, the drama constantly builds to its eventual climax with the death of the hero, and the denouement leaves the audience to contemplate his values and the effect his life had on all of us.
