Guest Presenter: Odyssey Opera's Henry VIII
This concert is presented by Odyssey Opera.
A dangerous monarch is determined to divorce Catherine of Aragon in favor of the beautiful, ambitious Anne Boleyn. This is one of history’s most infamous love triangles and the beginning of the “King’s Troubles”. Saint-Saens’s score brilliantly invokes an early Renaissance sensibility while remaining firmly rooted in the French grand opera tradition. Sweeping vocal melodies and rich orchestral writing bring this compelling tragedy to life.
