Opera Theatre's first DOUBLE FEATURE:
LA CURANDERA (Comedy).. .The betrothed Alberto and Alba are about to board a jet for Mexico City to visit his family and receive blessings on their upcoming nuptials when Alba intercepts a cell phone call for Alberto, who is at the counter attending to last-minute details. After the mellifluous Spanish-speaking female on the other end of the line asks for Alberto, the connection is cut off. Alba becomes suspicious, grills Alberto about the other woman and the suspected affair, and then turns a cold shoulder. The conflict is resolved when Alberto's uncle's nurse and the local innkeeper conspire to get Alba to visit La Curandera, the local mystical healer…
DIDO AND AENEAS (Tragedy) by Henry Purcell... This opera documents the story of Dido, Queen of Carthage, and the Prince of Troy, Aeneas. Based on book IV of Virgil’s epic poem, ‘The Aeneid’, Purcell’s opera is his first and only all-sung work.
