Tempo Hearts New Works!

Friday, August 12

Tempo members know that Minnesota Opera frequently presents new works, often in the form of that opera's American premiere or world premiere. So we are excited to see that Santa Fe Opera is presenting three new works in the 2013 - 2015 seasons!


The New York Times Arts Beat has the DL: Santa Fe Opera to Present Three New Works.


The works include:
David Daniels will star as Oscar Wilde
1. "Oscar," based on the life of Oscar Wilde and composed by Theodore Morrison with a libretto by John Cox. The great American countertenor, David Daniels, who starred in Minnesota Opera's production of Orpheus & Eurydice last season will sing the title role.


Nathan Gunn will star in Cold Mountain
2. "Cold Mountain," based on Charles Frazier's novel, composed by Jennifer Higdon and a libretto by Gene Scheer. In the 2003 movie version, the very attractive Jude Law played the lead role of W.P. Inman, the Confederate soldier. Matching Mr. Law's good looks, that role will be sung at Santa Fe by American baritone Nathan Gunn.


3. "Miss Fortune," by British composer Judith Weir and based on a Sicilian folktale, "Sfortuna."
