Lost and Found: our theme for 2019
The theme for this year’s competition is ‘Lost and Found’, a common thread in the three operas on tour in 2019. In Verdi’s masterpiece Rigoletto, the Duke’s jester loses his innocent daughter Gilda to his master, and his revenge leads to tragic results. The hero of Handel’s Rinaldo must come to the rescue of his beloved Almirena who has been kidnapped by a wicked sorceress. In Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore, Nemorino is losing in his fight for Adina’s affections against his rival, the dashing soldier Belcore, until a magic love potion offers hope.
