Odyssey Opera Continues Joan of Arc Season with L'assedio di Calais
The Huntginton Theatre
284 Huntington Avenue
United States

Tickets: $25 and Up
Odyssey Opera

One of the nation’s most innovative opera companies, Odyssey Opera, continues Trial by Fire: Joan of Arc and the Hundred Years’ War, a season-long exploration of operatic works inspired by martyr, saint, and military leader Joan of Arc (1412-1431). For two nights, Odyssey Opera presents a fully-staged Italian-language performance of Gaetano Donizetti’s neglected opera, L’assedio di Calais (1836). Based on Luigi Marchionni’s play L’assedio di Calais (The Siege of Calais) with libretto by Salvatore Cammarano, this rarely-heard Italian bel canto work has undeservedly been absent from the operatic stage. Conducted by Gil Rose with full orchestra and chorus and directed by Joshua Major, L’assedio di Calais features three singers making their company debut: baritone James Westman (Mayor of Calais), mezzo-soprano Magda Gartner (Aurelio) and Lucia Cesaroni (Eleanora).

In four concerts, PhiloSonia’s second season “Liaisons” explores composers’ friendships and the works they inspired.

About “Liaisons I: The Schumanns & Brahms”:
Passionate and tragic, complex and mysterious, the bond between these three great musical personalities was marked by mutual admiration and ardent support. During a time of fervent conflict between absolute and program music, their friendship formed the center of a stronghold in defense of the aesthetic values of pure music.
