The Blacksmith” is a two act comic opera with songs and dialogue in English, set in the American west of the 1890’s. The opera will be performed by singing actors and musicians of Opera Lafayette, before being presented at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC and in New York City.
The opera was composed in 1762 by Francois-Andre Danican Philidor and is being updated by Opera Lafayette’s Artistic Director Ryan Brown and Stage Director Nick Olcott, who draw on their family histories and those of their native western communities. The performance integrates American folk songs and the audience is invited to sing along.
