The Buffos in Concert

 

A Prima Donna in a catfight with a stage mother? A German tenor attempting to sing in Itaian? Come and see them! Baritone and bass-baritone roles are among the funniest in comic Italian Operas (Opera Buffa): Figaro, Bartolo, and Basilio from The Barber of Seville, Dulcamara and Belcore from The Elixir of Love, Don Magnifico and Dandini from La Cenerentolla, and others. The sopranos, the first ladies of the operas, are their co-plotters, their adversaries, and their sidekicks. Stefanos Koroneos and Adelmo Guidarelli, who both perform with Opera in Williamsburg, have made a specialty of comic opera roles all over the world. Together with soprano Kinneret Ely, they bring to the Williamsburg public an evening that combines superb singing with terrific comic talent.

Please reserve your free seat. Seats will be reserved till 7:15 PM and then will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis.

"The Diary of Anne Frank" («Дневник Анны Франк») is a monodrama for soprano, composed in 1968 and first performed in 1972. The music and libretto are by Russian composer Grigory Frid. The composer selected text from the diary of 13-years-old Anne Frank, who was in hiding with her family in a house in Amsterdam from July 1942 until their arrest in August 1944. In 21 brief scenes, she describes the people she sees, her different moods, and her emotions.

In summer 2012, Operabase listed Grigory Frid's "The Diary of Anne Frank" as the most frequently staged lyric work by a living composer over the previous five years.

Director and multimedia: Alex Kagan
Narrator: Alex Anski
Translator from Russian to Hebrew: David Sebba
Transalator from Hebrew to English supertitles: Naama Zahavi-Ely
