The Lensic and The Santa Fe Opera present The Met Live in HD: Dialogues des Carmélites

May 11, 2019   10:00 AM

One of the most successful operas of the later decades of the 20th century, Dialogues des Carmélites is a rare case of a modern work that is equally esteemed by audiences and experts. The opera focuses on a young member of an order of Carmelite nuns, the aristocratic Blanche de la Force, who must overcome a pathological timidity in order to answer her life’s calling. The score reflects key aspects of its composer’s personality: Francis Poulenc was an urbane Parisian with a profound mystical dimension, and the opera addresses both the characters’ internal lives and their external realities.

Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads the classic John Dexter production of Poulenc’s devastating story of faith and martyrdom. Mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard sings the touching role of Blanche and soprano Karita Mattila, a legend in her own time, returns to the Met as the Prioress. Approx. runtime: 3:29 [1 Intermission]

Tickets: $22-$28 | Students: $15

Santa Fe Symphony presents Berlioz Festival

Santa Fe Symphony presents Berlioz Festival

May 18, 2019   7:00 PM

In honor of the 150 year anniversary of master composer Hector Berlioz's death, our Season Finale presents an epic program that begins when Maestro Guillermo Figueroa hands over the baton to Concertmaster David Felberg and takes up his violin to perform Berlioz's Rêverie et Caprice. Maestro Figueroa returns to the podium to lead The Symphony for one of Berlioz's most extraordinarily dramatic solo cantatas—La mort de Cléopâtre (“The Death of Cleopatra”), composed in 1829. Mezzo-soprano Rebecca Robinson graces us with her “darkly pretty voice” for the solo in this gorgeously romantic work, which was not widely heard until approximately 40 years ago. Our 35th Anniversary Season Finale concludes with Berlioz's most celebrated work, Symphonie Fantastique. Written for large orchestra when he was just 26 years old and already famous, this brilliant piece premiered in Paris on December 5, 1830, and won him a reputation as one of the most progressive composers of the era. Through its movements, it tells the story of an artist's self-destructive passion for a beautiful woman. The symphony describes his obsession and dreams, tantrums and moments of tenderness, and visions of suicide and murder, ecstasy and despair. Rêverie et Caprice, op.8 for Violin & Orchestra Guillermo Figueroa, Violin La mort de Cléopâtre Rebecca Robinson, Mezzo Soprano Symphonie fantastique op. 14
