OPERA CIRCLE CLEVELAND presents the opera ZANETTO by Pietro Mascagni
Sunday, December 4, 2016 at 3pm

Valley Lutheran Church, Chagrin Falls

Cast to be announced. With Piano and Chamber Ensemble under the direction of Jacek Sobieski.
Only 40 minutes long and with cast of two singers, Zanetto was originally described by its composer as a scena lirica (lyric scene) rather than an opera. It is set in the countryside near Florence during the Renaissance and tells the story of an encounter between a beautiful courtesan, Silvia, and a young wandering minstrel, Zanetto. The libretto was adapted from an Italian translation by Emilio Praga of François Coppée's play Le passant (The passer-by) in which the young Sarah Bernhardt had won fame in the en travesti role of Zanetto.

Violinist Hristo Popov and pianist Per Enflo have performed together for over a decade including recitals in Europe and Carnegie Hall to critical acclaim.
