Announcing On Site Opera’s Summer 2014 Offerings
On Site Opera invites you to Rameau’s Pygmalion this June at two incredible venues!
Rameau’s 1748 Pygmalion is widely considered one of his greatest one-acts. The sculptor Pygmalion creates a statue to which he professes his love, and which he asks Venus to bring to life. L’Amour (Cupid) arrives to praise Pygmalion’s artistry and faith in love, and animates the statue. The new production will dig deeper into the themes and lessons inherent in the myth.
