MAZEPPA by Tchaikovsky
"If it at first it seemed a little foolhardy to mount such a big work on a small scale, any doubts were quickly laid to rest right from the opening women's chorus. You could just sit back, forget the spectacle and concentrate on Tchaikovsky's luscious vocal writing."

Our operas this season reveal indelible stories through the prism of the 20th century, using Andalusia, New York and Paris as a backdrop for characters in search of happiness in the modern world.

FRENCH OPERA WITH ENGLISH SURTITLES
