About Faust et Hélène and L’heure espagnole

New Camerata Opera will present a double bill of French one-act operas, conducted by Music Director Kamal Khan. For the first time ever, NCO brings its unique blend of immersive and fun performances to Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Music Director Kamal Khan and Stage Director John de los Santos conjure a gorgeous world in which clockwork photography by NYC-based artist Atom Moore creates a striking backdrop to this timeless story.

Faust et Hélène

Boulanger was a contemporary of Ravel’s and his influences can be heard in this piece that won her the Prix de Rome composition prize at the age of 19. With just three voices, this opera offers a generous glimpse into the genius of Boulanger’s compositional skill and deserves to be featured more frequently in the operatic canon. Taken from Goethe’s retelling of the story of Faust, Boulanger’s opera focuses on the moment when Faust is persuaded by Méphistophélès to sign over his soul to eternal damnation in return for being shown one moment of true happiness. The theme of time connects the two operas and provides a framework for Moore’s unique displays.

L’heure espagnole

First performed in Paris in 1911, L’heure espagnole is set in a clock shop in central Spain. It follows the fortunes of Torquemada, the hardworking clockmaker, as his young wife Concepción negotiates her way through her collection of ridiculous lovers. Ravel’s music is bursting with hummable melodies, lively habanera dances and other Spanish folk song elements that will defy audience’s preconceived notions of opera.
