Mavra, Stravinsky’s 1922 neo-classical chamber opera in the comic ‘buffa’ tradition of the 18th century raises the curtain on another of Frost Opera Theater’s theatrically compelling evenings of two one-act operas. This twenty-five minute opera from 1921 careens along with four characters featuring two arias, a duet, and a quartet. Ainadamar (Fountain of Tears), by Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov, premiered in 2003, garnered Grammy Awards for Best Opera Recording and Best Classical Contemporary Composition. Saturated in Spanish music, it portrays the relationship between the great Spanish playwright and poet, Federico Garcia Lorca and the Catalan tragedian Margarita Xirgu. Sung in Spanish and featuring flamenco dancing!
