The Reformed Pirate: Scenes from Eight Baroque Operas 2017


 

The Reformed Pirate: Scenes from Eight Baroque Operas

September 30th through October 1st

A pastiche of eight scenes from baroque operas!

Baroque opera scenes woven together to tell a new – but familiar – tale of love, jealousy, madness, storms, pirates, and a jolly good happy ending!

Characters are drawn from the Beggar’s Opera, with music by baroque masters.

New York City’s show-stopping baritone Curt Olds returns to Anchorage! Joining Curt is an all-star lineup of familiar AFM vocalists and instrumentalists, with narration by KLEF’s Jon Sharpe.

Featuring intriguing scenes from these baroque treasures:

  • Purcell, The Fairy Queen (1692)
  • John Gay (Samuel Arnold), Polly (1729/1777)
  • Handel, Ottone (1723)
  • Jean-Philippe Rameau, Platée (1745)
  • Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Les fous divertissants (1680)
  • Sebastián Durón, Veneno es de Amor la envidia (1711) – a rare, early zarzuela (Spanish baroque operetta)
  • Marais, Alcyone (1706)
  • Stephen Storace, The Pirates (1786)

This concert will be in a private home on the lower hillside (directions provided after ticket purchase). Space is limited. Purchase early to ensure your seats!
