New opera production of Goyescas by Enrique Granados Presented by The In Series (www.inseries.org)
Honoring the centennial of its première and composer Granados’ death– a cloak-and-dagger story of mistaken betrayals spins with the passion of Spanish dance. Inspired by Francisco de Goya’s paintings, this opera-ballet is rarely seen in America. Paintings come to life in writer Elizabeth Pringle’s new adaptation, coupled with Manuel de Falla’s Seven Spanish Popular Songs, choreography and direction by Jaime Coronado, and musically lead by conductor Carlos César Rodríguez.
