La Rondine

by Puccini

La Rondine is an Italian comic opera set in mid-19th century Paris and the French Riviera. Created by Giacomo Puccini in 1916, it tells the love story between a woman from high society and a naïve younger man of lesser means. The story twists and turns through the tumultuous times of true love.

NEW Ghosts.jpg

The Ghosts of Versailles

By Corigliano

In The Ghosts of Versailles, the spirits have literally come back to court; the court of Louis XVI that is. Marie Antoinette is upset about having been beheaded, so her favorite playwright attempts to entertain her by continuing the adventures of his characters from The Barber of Seville and The Marriage of Figaro. This opera-within-an-opera goes awry when Figaro refuses to stick to the script and the playwright must come to the Queen’s rescue and win her affection.

Radamisto 1.jpg

Radamisto

Radamisto was the first opera Handel wrote for the newly formed Royal Academy of Music of London. The opera's plot is loosely based on incidents from Tacitus's Annals of Imperial Rome. Set in ancient Armenia, this fiery opera involves a tyrannical king who covets the wife of a neighboring kingdom and creates a world of drama in his quest to possess her.

Zarzuela in the Summer Nights

Zarzuela Scenes from the MMF Zarzuela Project

One of the great subgenres of the operatic art form is the Zarzuela, Spanish operetta from Spain, Cuba, and the greater Latin American repertoire. Each season, select MMF Opera Institute vocalists are coached in the style of this romantic genre and bring the familiar melodies to the community with each performance. Standards like Lecuona’s Maria, la O, and Lara’s tenor favorite Grenada will have audience members humming along in the return of our beloved concert series.
