Lucrezia (Bolcom/Campbell) @ Western Washington University
Apr 19 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Description

The 50 minute romp is a zarzuela riff on Machiavelli’s story “La Mandragola”, in which Lucrezia, an intelligent seductress, takes charge of her own needs and tricks her suitors into not only giving her pleasure, but also their money. A game of seduction and love, riddled with humor and coy femininity, “Lucrezia” features the iconic art song style of Bolcom (“McTeague”, “A View from the Bridge” and “A Wedding”), with a pun-laced libretto by Mark Campbell.

Stage Direction: Heather Dudenbostel
