Opera Southwest Presents Bottesini’s Alì Babà (Rental)

October 20October 27
Albuquerque Journal Theatre 1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

October 20, 25 & 27, 2019
2 pm—Sundays
7:30 pm—Friday

Opera Southwest presents Alì Babà, a fully staged opera with orchestra, sung in Italian with English translation supertitles and presented in three acts with one intermission. With a libretto based on “Alì Babà and the Forty Thieves,” the well-known and lively story from One Thousand and One NightsAlì Babà was composed by Giovanni Bottesini, an Italian composer and double bass virtuoso known as the “Paganini of the bass.”

The opera premiered in 1871 in London, with considerable acclaim and numerous performances. Later, however, the score was lost, and it has not been heard in well over a century. As with Opera Southwest’s Amleto (Hamlet) project, Maestro Anthony Barrese has reconstructed the score from the composer’s original manuscript, and Opera Southwest will give the work its modern American premiere.

$19, $39, $59, $79, $99; discounts for groups of eight or more and patrons 30 and younger

February 2020

Opera Southwest Presents Daniel Catan’s Il Postino (Rental)

February 2, 2020February 9, 2020
Albuquerque Journal Theatre 1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

February 2, 7 & 9, 2020
2 pm—Sundays
7:30 pm—Friday

Opera Southwest presents Daniel Catán’s Il Postino, a fully staged opera with orchestra, sung in Spanish with both Spanish and English translation supertitles, and presented in two acts with one intermission.

Presented in partnership with the National Hispanic Cultural Center, Il Postino is based on the novel Ardiente Paciencia by Antonio Skármeta, as well as the film by Michael Radford. When exiled Chilean poet Pablo Neruda arrives on a tiny Italian island, he receives so much fan mail that Mario is hired as his personal postman. Mario soon becomes Neruda’s student, learning the art of poetry to woo a local barmaid. Inspired by Neruda, Mario’s poetic voice continues to take wing as he expresses the struggles of his fellow working class villagers. A firm friendship develops, and the postman is forever a changed man.

The sounds of the Mediterranean come alive in Catán’s stunningly beautiful, Puccini-esque score—a story of love in its many forms, set against a backdrop of conflicting political and spiritual ideologies.

$19, $39, $59, $79, $99; discounts for groups of eight or more and patrons 30 and younger
