This arresting opera is based on the classic Greek myth of Phaedra, wife of Theseus, the Athenian King who vanquished the dreaded Minotaur. Phaedra’s forbidden and unrequited love for her stepson, Hippolyt, embroils her in a tragic battle between feuding goddesses Aphrodite and Artemis for his affections, and ultimately results in Hippolyt’s demise at his father’s hand and Phaedra’s death at her own. The New York Times praised its 2007 World Premiere for “... a consistent rhythmic vitality and often an otherworldly beauty that is hard to resist.” A new production for the American Premiere is conceived by Artistic Director Robert B. Driver with designer Philippe Amand, creators of the June 2010 new production of Orphée et Eurydice for the Opera at the Perelman Series. Jack Mulroney Music Director Corrado Rovaris conducts. Hosted by OCP's Director of Community Programs Michael Bolton and mezzo-soprano Maren Montalbano, In Tune features musical excerpts, plot synopses and background information on the operas, cast and production information, interviews with artists and producers, Academy of Music historical moments and more!
