Cincinnati Opera celebrates its 90th season with three promising operas and a gala

0 Comments · Monday, June 14, 2010
Cincinnati Opera's 90th anniversary season already has more drama than a Verdi potboiler in an Italian opera house about to go on strike. But despite casting woes for the opening work, there's plenty to celebrate: three great operas with world-class performers, conductors and directors. It all kicks off with a gala concert June 19 featuring acclaimed performers from the company's past and present.

April has been the cruelest month as far as Cincinnati Opera is concerned. Within a two-week span, the highly anticipated production of Richard Wagner's 'Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg' lost three of its star performers, mostly for health reasons, and Artistic Director Evans Mirageas was stuck in London when volcanic ash grounded his flights. But pinch hitters are stepping up.

Speight Jenkins will be the first to tell you that there's grand opera and then there are Richard Wagner's operas, those massive, sprawling epics populated by feuding gods, warrior women sporting winged helmets, knights of the Grail and sexually frustrated lovers. These "integrated works of art," as Wagner called them, are the ultimate challenge for any opera company, demanding forces that could populate a small town.

Ainadamar is an old well located north of Granada. The name is Arabic for "Fountain of Tears," and it was there that Spain's preeminent poet and dramatist Federico Garcia Lorca was murdered by Falangists in August 1936. Lorca and his death are at the core of Osvaldo Gulijov's opera 'Ainadamar,' presented this week at Music Hall by Cincinnati Opera.
