BU Opera Institute presents spring 2020 season
Per Boston University’s recent announcement, all College of Fine Arts events have been canceled and classes have moved to remote teaching and learning for the balance of the spring semester and final exams.
Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Music: Opera Institute and School of Theatre announce the spring 2020 season of operas, beginning with Igor Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress in Boston University’s Joan & Edgar Booth Theatre. BU Opera Institute will stage Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito at Emerson’s Cutler Majestic Theatre in April.
THE RAKE’S PROGRESS
Igor Stravinsky, composer
W. H. Auden and Chester Kallman, librettists
William Lumpkin, conductor
Jim Petosa, stage director
Tom Rakewell attempts to relive his life from the perspective of his madness that followed a lifetime as a libertine. In a bargain with the disturbing Nick Shadow – is he the Devil himself? – Rakewell is provided with a providential inheritance to support his hedonism. Only the presence of Anne Trulove, his ever-faithful fiancée, can maintain his soul from ultimate damnation. But, he sinks deeper into madness before losing his life.
Sung in English with supertitles.
