A triple bill of one-act operas
La serva padrona is a quintessential operatic work that links history to the present with relatable characters in the form of a cunning young maid and her aging master. In Sāvitri, Holst reaches into the Mahābhārata, one of the great epics of ancient India, focusing on the tale of Death outsmarted by a young woman. The series closes with Walton’s The Bear, where a widow faithful to the memory of her late husband finds unexpected love.
