Maestro Anthony Barrese:  Restoring Ali Baba

Don't miss Maestro Anthony Barrese talking about how he has restored Ali Baba, the opera that will make its modern American premiere at Opera Southwest beginning on October 20.  This work by Giovanni Bottesini, a Verdi protege who conducted the world premiere of Aida, is based on One Thousand and One Nights.  It made a splash in London in 1871 but disappeared into obscurity shortly thereafter.  Like Amleto (aka Hamlet, composed by Franco Faccio), Maestro Barrese has brought this important music back to life. 

This event is free for Santa Fe Opera Guild members.  We ask you to register so that we can estimate how many people will be attending.  Members at the $60+ level may bring one guest (or co-member) for free.
