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.”

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

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.
