World Premiere

by Nicolas Reveles

All performances at the Balboa Theatre

Please note start time of matinee is 1pm

Ghosts is an evening of three one-act, horror-inspired operas by San Diego composer Nicolas Reveles. Comprised of the works Eden, Dormir and House, San Diego Opera is excited to present the world premiere of these operas. Eden, which features a libretto by director John De Los Santos, explores the boundaries of madness and obsession and is a tribute to Edgar Allan Poe. Dormir is an imaginative exploration of what might happen when Old World spiritual practices meet the Christian belief system, when portals open and unknown, powerful entities appear. House explores the idea that trauma haunts many of us, and that trauma remains in our bodies like ghosts.

Ghosts welcomes the return of mezzo-soprano Emily Fons. Directed by John de los Santos and conducted by Bruce Stasyna.
