Amy Beach’s Cabildo (1932) takes audiences on an enchanting journey of pirates against state power. Scored for five singers, speaker, and piano trio, Cabildo recounts the miraculous escape of Pierre LaFitte, an imprisoned pirate seeking to liberate New Orleans from British colonial rule Romanticism and Creole folk music in a fresh and vibrant harmonic medley. Her only opera, Cabildo, was never performed in Amy Beach’s lifetime. As the European premiere and only the fifth time the opera has been performed since it was written 90 years ago, this performance is an historic milestone in the revival of works by female composers.
