Opera in Bermuda
Attention all opera lovers!
The Gilbert & Sullivan Society is excited to bring the Metropolitan Opera to Bermuda in glorious HD!
Our next performance is on March 15th with Verdi's Falstaff
at the Tradewinds Auditorium in the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute.
Performance starts at 5.00 p.m.
Matthew Nester will provide a brief introduction about each opera and its composer immediately before the performance.
“When it comes to theatrical flair, captivating costumes, stage antics and imagination, there are not many Broadway shows to rival the Met's new Falstaff" (New York Times).
"A splendid cast is headed by the powerhouse Italian baritone Ambrogio Maestri, who simply owns the role of Falstaff... He makes Falstaff a charming rapscallion and sings with consummate Italianate style" (New York Times).
"James Levine was in full command, finding many flashes of passion and warmth in the high-traffic score" (WQXR).
"Robert Carsen has given the Met...a fresh and vibrant vehicle for the role's preeminent interpreter, Ambrogio Maestri... The cast works together with the breathless hilarity of an improv group... Stephanie Blythe in the role of Mistress Quickly matches Maestri's star power watt for watt; Angela Meade as Alice and Lisette Oropesa as Nannetta make a strike force of female vengeance... [James Levine,] in fine musical form, manages them as adroitly as ever" (New York Magazine).
"The directing is exquisitely detailed, with precise attention to personal interactions and big, antic crowd scenes...Baritone Ambrogio Maestri is a huge talent – a voice with power and penetration, impeccable diction and fine comic timing" (Wall Street Journal).
