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."

200TH ANNIVERSARY OF VERDI'S BIRTH

A charismatic pastor, Stiffelio, returns from a mission to find that his pious wife Lina has committed adultery. Her father is convinced of her infidelity but has no proof. A duel between the father and the perceived seducer brings retribution but no peace. Stiffelio is then torn between his need to forgive and his desire for revenge. A final confrontation confirms Lina’s innocence.
