Calendar 2014

Marc-Antoine Charpentier
Haymarket Opera Company will present the timeless myth of Diana and Actéon set by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, together with a pastorale by the same composer. “Le Jugement de Pan” is a singing contest between two talented shepherds with the half-goat, half human god Pan as the unlikely judge! The myth of the huntress Diana and her nymphs being spied upon in their bath by Actéon and his men is a classic tale of feminine mystery and power challenged by masculine ardor. This is baroque opera in all its visual, emotional, and aural glory. Dramatic music, evocative sets, stunning costumes, and gorgeous singing promise an evening you won’t want to miss.
