The Santa Fe Opera Spotlight Series 2019 with Oliver Prezant

Join conductor Oliver Prezant for the Santa Fe Opera’s Spotlight Series – five fun, informative talks presented in Santa Fe and Albuquerque on Santa Fe Opera’s 2019 season.  Each 90-minute presentation begins with a preview of one of the five productions of the upcoming season, and each looks at a variety of operas through the lens of a single topic.  Whether you’re a newcomer or an aficionado, these engaging, accessible presentations will increase you enjoyment and understanding of opera and enrich your experience in Santa Fe this summer.

Cosi fan tutte, by Wolfgang Amadeous Mozart
Mozart and the Music of Fidelity

So what if some guy (your sister’s boyfriend in disguise!) shows up begging for your love?  You’re in a committed relationship, right?  Wait a minute . . . is this some kind of test?  Maybe so, but one thing’s for sure:  Mozart’s brilliant musical characterizations and Da Ponte’s tight comedic text make for a searching exploration of love and faithfulness then, in 1790, and now, in a very different time.  We’ll cozy up to Cosi, and look at some similar operatic “test cases” as well.

Sunday, May 12th 2:00 pm – Albuquerque, Las Puertas Event Center
