Opera Lafayette Presents "Silvain"
ANDRÉ GRÉTRY COMPOSER FRANÇOIS MARMONTEL LIBRETTIST RYAN BROWN CONDUCTOR In French with dialogue in English and with English supertitles In the early 19th century French entrepreneurs moved to the American southwest and acquired vast tracts of land from the Mexican government. They guaranteed the peasants who settled these lands the same privileges as those at the center of the drama in Grétry and Marmontel’s opera. Conflicts around these rights in the United States have continued to the present day and this story’s resonance in the New World has inspired Opera Lafayette’s setting of this modern premiere of Silvain.
