Opera News - The Merchant of Venice18 April 2013
The American Journal, Opera news, has a spotlight feature about the premiere of Andre Tchaikowsky’s opera The Merchant of Venice (libretto after Shakespeare by John O’Brien). The article gives a fascinating insight into the world (and mind) of the composer and a glimpse into the the views of the work and the reason for its premiere, so long after the death of the composer, by David Pountney (director of the Bregenz Festival) and Keith Warner (director of the production).
The Andre Tchaikowsky website gives a full listing of the events that feature Tchaikowsky.
This is an amazing opportunity to hear a good portion of Andre Tchaikowsky’s output; a rare event and something that won’t happen every day!
