Details of Opera Philadelphia and the Ticket Luck value
The Opera Philadelphia comes up with wonderful productions of both new and classic operatic works resonating within the community and is committed to developing opera for the twentieth century. Opera Philadelphia has produced many plays like Nabucco, Ainadamar and Don Carlo. The opera will be bringing these productions to a live audience from April 25th to May 4th, 2014 at the stage of Academy Of Music in Philadelphia. The Opera brings together the best creative artists from the world and presents a range of educating programs that diversify and deepen the thinking of opera. Opera Philadelphia tickets are now available.
The Opera was formed in 1975 and has been delivering outstanding productions in innovative ways. While lavish productions of hit titles like Tosca, Carmen, Othello and La Traviata often grace the Academy's stage, the company is also recognized for its new productions, including Madama Butterfly and Fidelio. Opera Philadelphia also presented Hans Werner Henze's U.S premiere in 2010. With this premiere, the opera gained immense critical success and garnered national attention. The New York Times stated that, “The Opera Company of Philadelphia has scored a substantial artistic coup with the American premiere of Phaedra”.
Following this success, the Opera Philadelphia announced its American Repertoire Program in 2011. This program is a decade's commitment to create modern American work every season. This initiative was launched with Dark Sisters in 2012. This was relatively a new opera with a libretto from Stephen Karam and music by Nico Muhly. Since the founding of the company, Opera Philadelphia has kept a strong custom of cultivating and identifying the rising young talent. In addition to that, the opera casts these future artists alongside globally acclaimed singers.
Opera Philadelphia is proud to have two of the leading operatic training grounds of the country, in the city, which includes The Curtis Institute of Music and The Academy of Vocal Arts. Every season, the company engages artists from these centers in an array of programs. In collaboration with Music-Theatre Group and Gotham Chamber Opera, the company selected Missy Mazzoli and Lembit Beecher as its first Composers In Residence.
With nearly four decades of operatic tradition, Opera Philadelphia strives for a future that continues to provide audiences with the brightest and best in production quality, programming, outreach and artistry in new ways.
The plays that are soon to take place under the Opera Philadelphia include Nabucco, which is about Zaccaria's epic struggle and King Nebuchadnezzar, who had suppressed the Jews. The story also features the king's vengeful daughter called Abigaille. The opera is based on four acts and was composed by Giuseppe Verdi in 1841. Nabucco is considered as an opera that permanently established the reputation of Verdi as a composer. About the opera, he commented, "this is the opera with which my artistic career really begins”. In an extraordinary spectacle, Opera Philadelphia recreates this biblical story with a minor twist. This spectacular must-see modern production pays tribute to the 200th birthday of Verdi and the Year of Italian Culture in America.
Don Giovanni is a two-act opera with music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The opera blends melodrama, supernatural and comedy elements. It takes its basis from the legends of Don Juan who is a fictional seducer. The opera premiered in 1787 at the Teatro di Praga. This opera is among the favorites of many theatergoers and is a must-watch spectacle.
Winning a Grammy Award, Ainadamar is an opera about notorious life followed by the defiant death of Federico Garcia Lorca. This production has been highly acclaimed, with The New York Times hailing it as “ingenious” The New Yorker calls it “extraordinary” and Opera News heralds, “mesmerizing”. Opera Philadelphia tickets will take you to watch these new productions of the acclaimed operas.
