Opera Lafaytte: l’Épreuve villageoise

May 27, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - May 28, 2015 @ 9:00 pm

Opera Lafayette’s 20th anniversary season closes with an opera that delighted audiences during the early 19th century, not only in an opera-rich Europe, but also in the young American cities of New Orleans and New York.

With an extraordinary cast hailing from the three nations whose cultures animated New Orleans at the time – France, Spain, and the United States – Opera Lafayette re-imagines a performance by the storied Théatre d’Orléans.

Grétry’s L’Épreuve Villageoise depicts the trials and tribulations of a small country town. The rustic story and charming musical composition blend beautifully, emphasizing an essential aspect of Grétry’s operas that helped ensure his place as one of the 18th century’s most admired composers.
