Event description


The Canadian Premiere of the Romanian Operetta


by Ciprian Porumbescu

It is a deep, gloomy night in the Transylvanian mountains. Two runaway lovers wander the woods in search of shelter. Isolated in the dark heart of the evergreen forest, a village comes alive with laughter and song. It is the new moon making its way onto the sky, bringing about dreams of new love and happiness. Maidens and lads rejoice in its sight, chanting prayers to the mystical moon, who holds the power to reunite those in love.

This is the opening scene to the very first, and probably most celebrated, Romanian operettas: New Moon (Crai Nou) by Ciprian Porumbescu. Written in 1881, the work is a passionate attempt to bring traditional and folklore themes into the classical realm of operatic composition. Porumbescu used a libretto by a famous Romanian poet, Vasile Alecsandri, as well as his extensive studies in classical music, to create a joyful, condensed operetta, met with incredible acclaim at the time of its premiere.

The choir La Muse, from Montreal, conducted by Ioana German, featuring professional Romanian and Canadian soloists, will present the Canadian premiere of New Moon.

Please join us on October 22, 2016 for this magical representation of this well-loved Romanian operetta.

Soloists: Marina Negruta – soprano, Cristina Coatu – soprano (Brasov-Romania Opera), Liviu Iftene – tenor (Brasov-Romania Opera), Igor Antoci – baritone, Serghei Virticus – baritone, Jordan Delage – bass, Beguentch Gueldyev – piano
