A Classic and a Premiere Come to the Opera Stage

Nicolas Reveles, PhD

Popular lecturer and UCSD-TV opera program host Nicolas Reveles returns to reveal insights into Puccini’s last opera, Turandot, to be presented by San Diego Opera in February. In March, the Opera will present a San Diego premiere of Mexican composer Daniel Catan’s Florencia en el Amazonas. His Puccini-like score takes famous opera diva Florencia on a river journey into the jungle in search of her lost lover. Reveles will introduce Catan’s music and the opera’s narrative, in which the lines between reality and fantasy become blurred and in which nature merges with the supernatural.

Instructor: Nicolas Reveles has been associated with San Diego Opera since 1998. Before joining the opera staff, he was Professor of Music at University of San Diego, organist/choirmaster at a number of churches, and director/pianist for the White Oak Dance Program with Mikhail Baryshnikov. He has composed three operas and is host of Opera Talk on UCSD-TV and the San Diego Opera podcasts online. Reveles holds a doctorate in piano from the Manhattan School of Music and a master of arts in choral conducting from the University of Redlands.
