Yours truly. For the first time ever, Minnesota Opera presents The Anonymous Lover, an opera written in 1780 by the groundbreaking Black composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. This comic romance about earnest vulnerability and steadfast devotion tells the story of a beautiful young widow who is doubtful about ever finding love again. When she begins receiving anonymous love letters, her close friend—and secret admirer— feigns amusement while anxiously working up the courage to confess to his role as the sender. Will their journey result in a woeful case of unrequited love? Or will true love prevail?
Sung in French with English dialogue. English captions projected above the stage.
