Nov. 19: Scenes from French operas sung at WSU

PULLMAN, Wash. – Scenes of love from operas composed in French – but presented here in English – will be performed free to the public in “Viva La France!” by the Washington State University Opera Workshop at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19, in Bryan Hall.

In Act One of Georges Bizet’s “Carmen,” the fiery gypsy seduces the naïve soldier, Don Jose, in 19th Century Spain. “Les Contes d’Hoffmann,” composed by Jacques Offenbach, combines fantasy, science fiction and horror to tell the tale of the young poet, Hoffmann, and his three great love affairs.

In Gaetano Donizetti’s comic opera, “La Fille du Regiment,” Marie, an orphan girl raised by a regiment of French soldiers, falls in love with a young Tyrolean, Tonio.

The 21-singer workshop is directed by Julie Anne Wieck, associate professor of voice, and accompanied by Karen Savage, associate professor of piano.
