Opera at Faena Forum

Faena Forum Experiential, Music & Dance

JULY 15 – JULY 18

This summer-- Faena Art is joining forces with Miami Beach Music Festival (MMF) to transform Faena District’s, idyllic Faena Forum into a grand opera theater! We invite our community to a night at the opera, FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! MMF’s summer programming is anchored by two cutting-edge opera productions: Cendrillon tells the famous story of Cinderella in richly romantic music by French composer Jules Massenet;  Albert Herring is English composer Benjamin Britten’s comic opera, following the timid Albert as he shocks the village folk with drunken hijinks.

CENDRILLON -  Friday, July 16 & Sunday, July 18

Jules Massenet’s rendition of Cendrillon (Cinderella) will enthrall guests as music echoes the grand love themes of the highly respected Wagner Institute, with hints of Rossini’s vocal fireworks and Tchaikovsky’s mesmerizing ballet music. With text that invites the audience to “escape dark realities” and believe in the “fabulous,” audiences delight in Massenet’s dreamy musical setting of the timeless glass slipper fairytale.

*Performed in French with subtitles.

ALBERT HERRING - Thursday, July 15 & Saturday, July 17

Albert Herring is the “coming-of-age” story of a hapless antihero in a town full of colorful characters who preparty the town’s May Day festivities. An outcast with an overbearing mother, Herring is embarrassingly crowned the King of May but squanders his winnings after two rebellious young lovers spike his punch. Benjamin Britten paints a vivid musical picture in this adaptation of a story by French author Guy de Maupassant.

*Performed in English.
