My Life with Pablo Neruda
5:00PM - 5:30PM

Presented by Voice Afire Opera-Cabaret

It is September 11, 1973. Pablo Neruda, the great Chilean poet and political activist, lies dying. Matilde Urrutia, the love of his life and soon-to- be widow, faces a moral and personal crisis. Will she take up her husband’s “flag”? Will she stand up to the murderous military dictatorship that has inundated Chile? Or will she retreat behind the walls of her beloved garden. In Chile, in 1973, questions of social responsibility are a matter of life or death. 

My Life with Pablo Neruda - an original 4 act "opera-cabaret" for 8 performers – includes musical settings of some of Neruda’s most beloved poems. Using a diversity of styles that include references to Argentine tango, Brazilian samba, Cuban rumba, and Chilean cueca, My Life with Pablo Neruda tells a story that is especially relevant to today’s political climate, when politics has again become a matter of life and death.

Purchase tickets via OvationTix.

Opera Naples
Concert: A Celebration of Leonard Bernstein Concert

Web Address: https://red.vendini.com/ticket-software.html?t=tix&e=953b9b941ff76ff04f60abdaa4d5fd8b
Start Time: 7:30PM

Join us for an evening of music performed by soloists and the Opera Naples Chorus to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the great American composer, educator and conductor, Leonard Bernstein.  One of the most visible personalities in classical music during the twentieth century, he is known for West Side Story and Candide, in addition to numerous symphonic works, choral pieces, ballet, and songs.
Haymarket Opera Company
Concert: Oratorio per la Settimana Santa

Web Address: www.haymarketopera.org
Start Time: 5:00PM

For its third annual Lenten Oratorio, Haymarket brings you the earliest known Passion oratorio. Written in Rome in the 1640s, this stirring work contrasts the devilish delight of demons rejoicing at the death of Christ with the heartbreaking lamentation of the Virgin Mary as she weeps for the world. Attributed to Luigi Rossi, the compact masterpiece is performed by an ensemble of 17th-century instruments with soloists and chorus.

Giulio Cesare Raggioli’s libretto is excitingly dramatic compared to its forerunners and contemporaries, and the oratorio’s marked theatricality is heightened by the lack of a narrator, offering instead intense dialogues and lyrical arias and ensembles. The diabolically joyous music of the cheerful demons as they comment on her misery and on the folly of faith intensifies the dramatic impact of the Virgin’s lamentation as she pours forth the anguish of her soul (like Ariadne pining for the return of Theseus). The special color of the lirone adds unusually intense expressiveness to the most sorrowful moments, stirring compassion in listeners. This highly intense, concise, and cathartic mini-opera will engage the senses and the souls of its listeners.
