San Diego Opera: "Murder in the Cathedral," by Illdebrando Pizzetti
North American Premere. Archbishop Thomas Becket was brutally murdered in Canterbury Cathedral defending his church against the intrusions of King Henry II. Based on the T. S. Eliot play, this opera covers the last month of Becket’s life as he struggles with politics, religion and temptation. The lyrical and melodic score reminiscent of Puccini is a tour-de-force for the great bass Ferruccio Furlanetto.
Sung in Italian with English translations above the stage.
