Arminio in Armenia: A budget epic
The Blue Building
New York, NY
Share this event:


Arminio in Armenia, Opera Feroce's second pasticcio opera and most ambitious work to date, is an affectionate send-up of Baroque opera  a "faux-pera seria"  created by combining virtuosic music by the Italian composer Nicola Porpora (1686-1768) with a plot conceived by Opera Feroce's Hayden DeWitt. These performances will provide audience members the opportunity to again hear the music of this once-popular composer, who was known for his rivalry with Handel and for his success as a singing teacher (most famous student  the castrato Farinelli). Arminio's scenario pokes fun at common conceits of Porpora's day: an exotic locale (Massachusetts!), mistaken identity, sorcery, star-crossed lovers, swordplay, and a shipwreck. All music is sung in the (nearly) original Italian, except for the recitatives, which have freshly-written text in English supporting the new story.
