Samuel Arnold (1740-1802): The Siege of Korčula, a comic opera in 3 acts
The comic opera The Siege of Korčula (1786) by English composer and organist Samuel Arnold, based on a libretto by John O'Keefe, premiered on August 14, 2021, in Korčula, 235 years after the 450th anniversary of the siege of Korčula (1571.). The opera was performed in a new, reconstructed edition as the original part was destroyed and lost. Extensive work of reconstruction of the opera, adaptation for performance in the Croatian language, and previous musicological research, was led by maestro Josip degl’Ivellio, an award-winning Croatian composer and choirmaster. It is directed by Branka Cvitković and costume design and scenography by Dženisa Pecotić.
