Opera’s Cannonball Moments: Celebrating the Ignatian Year

Loyola Opera Workshop invites you to the first event of the 2021-22 season – “Opera’s Cannonball Moments: Celebrating the Ignatian Year.” This piano-accompanied scenes program will feature 33 graduate and undergraduate singers, and draws inspiration from St. Ignatius himself. While recuperating from a serious injury 500 years ago, he experienced a revelation, directing him to forsake his military career and become a man of God. Enjoy a sample of life-changing moments in the music of Mozart, Ravel, Gilbert & Sullivan, Massenet, Puccini, Poulenc and Weill.

Music director Carol Rausch will be at the piano, and the stage directors are Luretta Bybee, Irini Kyriakidou, and Lara Lignitz. Thursday, November 4th, at 7:30pm in Nunemaker Auditorium.

Darling, do not be offended : an anti-operetta

As part of the 2019 New Orleans’ observance of Bloomsday, we will present the world premiere of Jonathan Freilich’s new operetta, we are calling it an anti-opera, “Darling, Do Not be Offended (At What I Wrote)”. The libretto is based on salacious (filthy!!) letters Joyce wrote to Nora, which reference their first walk together. Though Ulysses is rightfully installed in the canon of 20th century literature, that canonization has obscured the personal and profane foundation of the novel; Jonathan’s new work not only celebrates that foundation, but continues the experimental, revolutionary aesthetic and spirit of Joyce’s writing. The music will be performed by local musicians of the highest caliber and will feature projections by award winning multi-media artist David Gamble.

Show times are Friday June 14th, 7:30pm and 8:45pm and Sunday June 16th at 7:30pm and 8:45pm, $8- ticket at the door , Online Tix available on Evening of the 12th

Approximate 45 minute run time.
