Lander opera series features 'Francesa da Rimini'

Mar 10, 2013 - Staff

See it live in large-screen video format at 10 a.m. Saturday March 16, at the Fremont County Library in Lander. Admission is free.

The next offering in the Lander Met Opera 2012-13 Season is Zandonai's "Francesca da Rimini."

See it live in large-screen video format at 10 a.m. Saturday March 16, at the Fremont County Library in Lander. Admission is free.

The production retells in operatic form the story of a love triangle that ends in tragedy.

The work was derived from a play which was written early in the 20th century in the era of art nouveau by Gabriele d'Annunzio for the famous early exponent of modern dance, Eleonora Duse.

The opera reflects the flamboyance of that age and this style is ably represented in this Metropolitan Opera production which will be shown in a live HDTV presentation.

It is a challenging opera musically and dramatically, and this production has been well received by critics who have praised the singers, the orchestra, and the staging.

The Fremont County Library in Lander is at 220 Amoretti Street.
