The opera season in Reno gets under way Nov. 10 and 12 with Verdi’s timeless tale of love’s sacrifices. Last performed by the Nevada Opera in the 2000-2001 season, “”La Traviata” tells the story of a Parisian courtesan, Violetta Valery, who finds true love with the naive Alfredo Germont. Her happiness is short-lived as she is forced to sacrifice her love for the sake of the Germont family honor.
On Feb. 9 and 10 the company will present Rossini’s sparkling version of the Cinderella story, “La Cenerentola.” Written just a year after the “Barber of Seville,” Rossini’s telling of the Cinderella story has become one of his most popular works. The music is quintessential Rossini with hilarious ensembles and magnificent arias.
On April 27 and 29 Nevada Opera will bring an Offenbach rarity, “Orpheus in the Underworld.” It is a sassy spoof on the classic legend of Orpheus and Euridice and includes a popular can-can. The score is brilliantly crafted and the story is uproariously funny. Critics have called “Orpheus in the Underworld” a much-appreciated but rarely performed masterpiece. Nevada Opera takes pride in being the first opera company in America to present “Orpheus” in the new critical edition, performed as the composer originally wrote it, by French musicologist and conductor Jean-Christophe Keck.
Nevada Opera, the state’s only professional opera company, is entering the 39th season bringing opera, operettas, musicals and education and outreach activities to Nevada and Sierra Nevada.
