A delicious journey into the true story of playwright Federico García Lorca, Golijov’s Ainadamar explores his life through the eyes, and voice, of his muse – Catalan actress Margarita Xirgu.
Filled with the passion of flamenco and set in the heat of a civil war, Ainadamar is a nuanced and spicy tapa-sized tapestry of sound that is both delicate and bold. Like the unfolding flavors and aromas of a Rioja, Golijov’s masterful composition transports you to the heart of Andalusia.
A luxurious celebration banquet, Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro is a favourite of aficionados and the perfect production for a first taste of opera.
Opulent and satisfying, with lush orchestration and a love story – or love stories – as tender and temperamental as a soufflé, as a clever servant aims to outwit his masters in a game of love and deception. The Marriage of Figaro is a must-see opera that will leave you immensely nourished and enriched.
Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with fellow opera enthusiasts and learn from a true maestro. Mark your calendars and join us for an insightful, friendly, and even humorous exploration of these operas. See you there!
