About Opera San José
General Director Irene Dalis founded Opera San José in 1984 as a professional opera company dedicated to showcasing and developing emerging opera singers. The feature that makes Opera San José unique in the United States is its resident company of principal artists, formed in 1988, through which outstanding operatic artists in the first years of their careers are identified and awarded annual contracts to perform leading roles in mainstage productions and to participate in school and community-wide educational activities. These singers are groomed for international performing careers. Due to the resident nature of the company, modeled after the German regional opera company, these artists build substantial professional repertoire, are coached by resident and guest conductors and stage directors, and are prepared to meet the demands of a successful operatic career.
Il Trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi
A personal vendetta. A doomed love triangle. One gypsys lifelong desire for revenge is the backdrop for Giuseppe Verdis dramatic love story, Il Trovatore.
Based on the play El Trovador (The Troubadour) by Spanish playwrite Antonio Garcia Gutirrez, this powerful melodrama set in 15th-century Spain has it all: vengeance, war, jealousy, and passion with an emotional, heart-stopping score.
Libretto by Salvadore Cammarano based on the play El Trovador (The Troubadour) by Antoine Danchet. Sung in Italian.
Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss
A practical joke. A secret rendezvous. One mans elaborate plan for revenge leads to a rousing evening of mistaken identities, flirtations, and light-hearted deceit in Johann Strauss most celebrated operetta, Die Fledermaus (The Bat).
Set in 19th-century Vienna, this delightful farce is filled with effervescent melodies, lilting waltzes and charming sentiment. From the sparkling overture to the rollicking tribute to champagne, the Waltz Kings madcap masterpiece is the jewel of the golden age of operetta.
Libretto By Karl Haffner & Richard Gene based on a comedy Das Gefängnis (The Prison) by Julius R. Bendix and the vaudeville play le Réveillon (The Midnight Supper) by Henri Meilhac & Ludovic Halvy. Sung In German.
