“Yale Baroque Opera Project to stage rarely performed piece” (Spandana Bhattacharya, The Yale Daily News, April 22, 2015)
In their upcoming production, members of the Yale Baroque Opera Project will perform in English for the first time ever.
“Ulysses Goes to College, in a Lively Monteverdi” (Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times, May 7, 2012)
What came through in this engaging production, with its stylish period costumes and simple, effective sets, was that Monteverdi’s operas were truly conceived for the stage.
“The Highly Unlikely Opera Company” (Christopher Arnott, Yale Alumni Magazine, July/August 2012)
Appropriately for Homer’s epic, the journey to the stage has been a story of transformation, wonder, unlikely collaborations, and how to prepare for the unexpected…How do college students pull off the sort of performance that lands kind reviews in elite publications?
“Unsung: Rediscovering the Operas of Francesco Cavalli” (Alex Ross, The New Yorker, May 25, 2009)
Giasone came off beautifully. …All but three of the singers were Yale undergraduates, some with little or no experience singing opera. But the lack of professional polish was hardly a disadvantage in a piece written at a time when master’s degrees in vocal music didn’t exist, and opera singers were simply actors with good voices.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Yale Baroque Opera Project announces eleventh production.
