Val Machin Opera Scenes

Opera

Opera & Voice

16 May 7:30pm Conservatorium Theatre
16 May 7:30pm Conservatorium Theatre
17 May 7:30pm Conservatorium Theatre

Three striking pieces that put women centre stage weave together to make up the 2019 Val Machin Opera Scenes. Classic extracts from Massenet’s Manon (sung in English), Poulenc’s Dialogue des Carmélites (sung in French) and Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana (sung in Latin and Italian) will be showcased by some of the country’s best young opera singers, conducted by Nicholas Cleobury and directed by Jacqui Somerville.

Massenet’s Manon tells the story of an impulsive young woman who is drawn into a world of male desire. She recklessly chooses luxury over love and, in doing so, pays the ultimate price. The scene takes place in France during the 18th century under the reign of Louis XV. Dialogue des Carmélites, based on true story, explores faith and redemption, fate and sacrifice. The opera explores the events that lead to 16 Carmelite nuns being beheaded during the Reign of Terror. It charts the story of Blanche who deserts her aristocratic family under the pressures of the shadows of the revolution and joins the Carmelite order in the hope of escaping death. As the increasingly paranoid revolutionaries close in, Blanche, her family and the nuns hold a series of discussions on their circumstances, the danger, their faith and, ultimately their martyrdom. Mascagni’s, Cavalleria Rusticana is a drama of betrayal and retribution. Adapted from a short story and play written by Giovanni Verga, the opera takes place on an Easter Morning in 19th Century Sicily.

Les Misérables is the world’s longest running musical — a true modern classic based on Victor Hugo’s novel and featuring one of the most memorable scores of all time. With countless awards to its name, Les Misérables is as groundbreaking today as it was when it first premiered in London in 1985.

In nineteenth century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, only to find nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe that Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean’s adopted daughter. His world view shattered, Javert commits suicide, and Valjean finally attains the peace that he has sought for so long.
