La Reine de Saba

Charles Gounod

UNITED STATES PREMIERE

Music by Charles Gounod

Libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré

Presented in concert, Performed in French with English supertitles

Balkis, the famed Queen of Sheba, arrives in Jerusalem to meet her betrothed, King Solomon. But the beautiful and powerful Queen instead finds herself drawn to Solomon’s master architect Adoniram. What follows is a dramatic struggle between love and obligation, filled with intrigue, jealousy, and betrayal. A classic French Grand Opera from the composer who wrote Faust. This forgotten masterpiece, inspired by Gérard de Nerval’s book Le voyage en Orient, is resurrected by Odyssey Opera for one night only at Jordan Hall. Don’t miss this powerful love story in an annual concert event that has become the heralded start to the Boston classical music season

Donizetti: L’ASSEDIO DI CALAIS (THE SIEGE OF CALAIS)

Libretto by Salvatore Cammarano (based on Luigi Marchionni’s play L’assedio di Calais)
Conducted by Gil Rose

Donizetti’s L’assedio di Calais (The Siege of Calais) focuses on the bleak wartime and tales of courage and self-sacrifice in Edward the III’s year-long Siege of Calais during the Hundred Years’ War. This rarely-heard Italian bel canto work has undeservedly been absent from the operatic stage but recent revivals have shown it to be a work of great beauty and poetry. Salvatore Cammarano wrote the Italian libretto, which has been described as “…a remarkable libretto, the closest Cammarano ever got to real poetry, particularly in his description of the embattled city and the heartfelt pride of its citizens”
