with Opera Idaho Children’s Choruses
We have a season filled with outstanding operas, incredible collaborations and glorious male voices! The new season will be the season of the baritone, their glorious resonant sound giving life to each opera’s title character. For those of you who came to Carmen, did you not love our toreador? After such a successful production of Carmen at the Morrison Center, Rigoletto will once again have us returning to this wonderful venue. The vengeance-seeking hunchback Rigoletto … the solemn, mysterious Russian aristocrat … the carefree man-about-town Figaro … different men, all baritones!
Rigoletto is considered by many to be the great Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi’s first operatic masterpiece. We’ll return to The Egyptian Theater with Evgeny Onegin, the first Russian opera performed by Opera Idaho. It is the most-often performed of Russian operas in the U.S., and was the season-opening opera of The Metropolitan Opera in 2013 and featured in a Met – Live in HD broadcast seen around the world. Gioacchino Rossini’s comic masterpiece Il barbiere di Siviglia has proven to be one of the greatest masterpieces of comedy within music. Even after two hundred years, its popularity on the modern opera stage attests to that greatness – as a staple of the operatic repertoire, Il barbiere appears as number nine on the Operabase list of the most-performed operas worldwide.
We have an entire season of events aside from the main stage operas that are designed to keep your love of the art in full swing. Our à la carte productions are: Our summer production of The King and I in Concert, Orpheus and Euridice, and the double bill of Brundibár & Another Sunrise. Christoph Willibald Gluck’s late classical period opera Orpheus and Euridice will presented in a semi-staged, English-language version as a collaboration between Boise Baroque, Opera Idaho and Ballet Idaho. This is the first-ever collaboration of Opera Idaho with Boise Baroque. Brundibár is a children’s opera by Jewish Czech composer Hans Krása and will be performed by Opera Idaho’s Children’s Choruses in honor of Idaho Holocaust Remembrance.
