Mozart – Les Noces de Figaro (Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt libretto)

May 13th 2020 – Salle Ravel , Levallois

Cancelled due to covid19 crisis

The Marriage of Figaro by Beaumarchais was transformed by Mozart and his Italian librettist Da Ponte. Nevertheless, the original political intentions of the work were undermined by the imperial censure of Mozart’s Vienna. In Eric Emmanuel Schmitt’s revisited French text, he looks to revive the biting character of the original libretto without losing the beauty of the musical score. Excerpts of this new re-tanslation were performed in Paris’s Rive Gauche Theater in 2015 by Opera Fuoco and David Stern, who was intrigued by the subtle differences between Da Ponte and Schmitt. This performance will be a premiere of the integral Marriage de Figaro by Mozart and Eric Emmanuel Schmitt, reuniting the spirits of the 18th and 21st centuries.

Barber of Seville – PBO 2020 – South Florida Classical Review

Palm Beach Opera’s “Il barbiere di Siviglia” dress rehearsal Wednesday, February 26, 2020.

“After the conclusion of the famous Overture to Rossini’s Barber of Seville, Palm Beach Opera chief conductor David Stern invited the orchestra to stand to receive the applause. (…) The Overture, fortunately, was not marred by any madcap antics on stage, full of crisp string playing, such as in the mock-sinister minor-key theme that sounds like snipping barber scissors. (…) Stern led a spirited performance, with thumps of drums and cymbals, through crescendos and accelerandos, that gave the opera a propulsive start.”

David Fleshler

New review – Turandot – PBO 2020

” (…) Chief Conductor David Stern brings out the score’s varied moods, contrasting the chaotic populace with the contemplative reminiscences of the trio of officials, Ping, Pang and Pong, and the pathos of the plight of Timur and Liù.”

David M.Rice – Classical Source

Puccini – Turandot – Palm Beach opera – 25/01/2020

“Under chief conductor David Stern, the Palm Beach Opera orchestra did its usual excellent work. The outstanding string section played with transparent delicacy in Puccini’s shimmering harmonies. Soft-edged winds, stark brass and clanging percussion all contributed to bringing out the power and variety of Puccini’s richly colored score.”
