“The Consul” Makes its Opera Santa Barbara Debut

Posted on  March 31, 2014

The Pulitzer Prize winning opera The Consul will be making its Opera Santa Barbara premiere at the Granada Theatre on April 25th.

 

The Consul, a three-act English language opera, takes place in a European country with a totalitarian government. It tells the suspenseful story of a man on the run from the government and his family’s attempt to obtain a visa from the consul’s office in order to leave the country. Opera Santa Barbara’s website describes the show as “Hitchcock set to music!”

 

Gian-Carlo Menotti wrote The Consul and it was first performed in Philadelphia in 1950. The show later had a successful eight-month run on Broadway. The Consul received several accolades for musical excellence including the 1950 Pulitzer Prize for music as well as the 1950 New York Drama Critics Circle Award for best musical.

 

The cast consists of three talented singers, Soprano Alexandra Lobianco, Baritone Joshua Jeremiah and Nina Yoshida Nelsen, a mezzo-soprano. Lobianco has performed in the Baltimore Concert Opera, the St. Peterserburg Opera and many others.  Jeremiah has actually played the role of John Sorel in The Consul previously. Nina Yoshida Nelsen is an Opera Santa Barbara veteran  previously appeared in the opera’s production of Madame Butterfly.
