The Aspern Papers Theatre Tickets

Dominick Argento's haunting opera The Aspern Papers takes place in the mid-to-late 1800s at a crumbling villa on the banks of a remote Italian lake. The current production makes a smart choice in its stunningly sparse set, which sets the scene for the dramatic tale to come. Indeed, the show's subject matter involved the main themes of Henry James' novella version: inter-relational drama, legacy, ego, love and betrayal. Although Argento changes some basic elements of James' plot, to spin the focus toward the opera, the story remains poetic and poignant and the music is nothing short of spectacular!

The Aspern Papers Family Theatre Tickets

Every family has drama and secrets of their own and The Aspern Papers delves deeply into one family's darkest secrets. The story is centered around Juliana Bordereau, a once-great diva of the opera stage who we meet in the opening bars of the opera as a bent, elderly woman shrouded in black silk and lace. When the curtain rises, Juliana sings a mournful song of longing ("Snow and cypress, glacier and leaf...") that instantly sets the tone for the opera. Juliana, we discover, was in love with a composer named Aspern. She was his muse, and now she holds secrets about his death and the whereabouts of a missing opera he was rumored to have written before he died. All of a sudden their world in turned upside-down when a stranger comes to the villa in search of a room to rent. The Lodger (Nathan Gunn) turns out to be an Aspern scholar who has come to discover Juliana's secrets. Find great deals on family theatre tickets at StubHub today!

The story shifts back and forth between the present time period and the past, when Juliana was young as Aspern was still living. Actress Alexandra Deshorties plays both the younger and older version of Juliana to perfection, and its impossible not to be moved by her special soprano vocals. Of course, Susan Graham (Tina), for her part, provides the most spectacular solos of the evening. Experience both of these delightful female vocalists with Dallas Opera Tickets from StubHub!
