Reviewer John Jane

Orfeo Ed Euridice (Orpheus and Eurydice) is an opera by Christoph Willibald Gluck, based on the myth of Orpheus. Gluck composed two versions of his Baroque masterpiece: the Vienna original, in Italian and a French language adaptation a decade later to suit Parisian tastes. The more focused of the two is undoubtedly the Vienna original. The version presented by Vancouver Opera is closer to the original. Full review


 

Cavalleria Rusticana in Concert by Pietro Mascagni

This beloved masterpiece, Cavalleria Rusticana in Concert delivers intense passion, memorable music and incredible arias. This one-act opera, performed live and in concert, welcomes back Music Director Emeritus Jonathan Darlington to conduct the Vancouver Opera Orchestra and Chorus.

When & Where Saturday, April 30, 7:30pm, Thursday, May 5, 7:30pm, Saturday, May 7, 7:30pm & Sunday, May 8, 2pm | Queen Elizabeth Theatre

Gilbert and Sullivan’s comedic tale is a delightful combination of forbidden love across class divides and the shenanigans that take place along the way. Poking fun at social hierarchies and packed with absurd characters, this wildly popular operetta delivers plenty of laughs and memorable music.
