Opera Philadelphia is proud to present the 2013-2014 Gala, DUENDE, on Saturday, October 26, 2013 at the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia. Duende is a Spanish word for a visceral reaction to a piece of music or performance; something that you cannot quite define but you know it instantly when you see or hear it; it is an artistic passion that cannot be contained.
DUENDE celebrates the upcoming production of Osvaldo Golijov’s Ainadamar, the story of the controversial life and defiant death of Spanish poet Federico García Lorca. In a famous lecture he gave in 1933, Lorca remarked that duende "climbs up inside you, from the soles of the feet." The gala honors this arresting opera, as well as the unbridled passion that goes into everything Opera Philadelphia does.
