This program includes three dramatic scenes, from Sapho (a modern premiere), Medée, and Oedipe à Colone - classical Greek tragedies set by Martini, Cherubini and Sacchini. These operas held the stage for multiple performances in the 1790's and reflect the tumultuous emotions of the French Revolution raging in the streets during the same period.  The production, with full orchestra and chorus, features the young Czech director Mirenka Cechova and lighting by Martin Spetlik, and a cast including soprano Nathalie Paulin, tenor Antonio Figueroa and baritone Nathaniel Watson.
