State Opera of South Australia presents La Sonnambula

La Sonnambula Opera SA


La Sonnambula is set in a Swiss village celebrating the betrothal of Amina to the wealthy young landowner Elvino. But there are, of course, twists and trysts and other villagers and visitors set out to interrupt the wedding.

La Sonnambula means the 'sleepwalker' in Italian. It was written by Vincenzo Bellini in Italian to a libretto by Felice Romani, and is based on a ballet pantomime. It was first performed in 1831 in Milan.

Julie Edwardson's new production was created in 2010 for the Opera Conference and comes to Adelaide for the first time conducted by Benjamin Northey and backed by the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra State Opera Chorus

The cast includes Emma Matthews as Amina, Aldo Di Toro as Evlino, Andrew Collis as Count Rodolfo and Teresa la Rocca as Lisa.

The running time is approximately 2 hours, and while it's expected Adelaide Opera lovers will be enthused it's also a nice energetic but not too heavy piece for an introduction to Opera for kids and novices.
