Opera Lafayette presents Alessandro Stradella's La Susanna
Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, 2700 F St NW
Two judges desire the beautiful Susanna. When she rejects their advances, they exploit their power in an attempt to destroy her. Taken from the timely story of Susanna and the Elders from the Book of Daniel, this is the Bible’s iconic story of sexual harassment and the perversion of justice. Originally conceived with a male narrator and male savior, Stradella’s seductive oratorio from 1681 becomes a powerful and complicated opera for 2019, with women as both storyteller and savior.
