Love is complicated. That’s the deceptively simple thesis behind New Jersey Festival Orchestra and Opera at Florham’s Love Triangles – Comic and Deadly, which spotlights two operas about the sometimes farcical, sometimes terrible effects of passion. Guest vocalists from NY Metropolitan Opera, including Raul Melo, and beyond join the orchestra.
- Mascagni—Cavalleria Rusticana: The wild success of Mascagni’s one-act opera of jealousy and passion haunted the composer, whose future works would never again reach such great heights.
- Scarmolin—The Interrupted Serenade: The Italian-born composer nods to Mozart’s work in this lighthearted, one-act opera about the silly side of love.
New Jersey Festival Orchestra
After three decades as the Westfield Symphony Orchestra, the New Jersey Festival Orchestra announced a new name in 2013 to signal its evolving artistic mission and growing love of confetti. Having cultivated musical excellence in Westfield for so long, they turned their attention to bringing that culture to a statewide audience. Their concerts are a celebration of symphonic music both classical and contemporary, including world premieres from local composers, and operas-in-concert in collaboration with Opera at Florham.
