Our composer

La Flamenca (1903) was written by Lucien Lambert, a composer of New Orleans Creole heritage, and a student of the great Jules Massenet. Produced to acclaim in Paris, the opera has never been performed in its entirety in America. We intend to bring the work to life on the stage of the Marigny Opera House in May, 2017.

This will be OperaCréole’s second major production. In October, 2015 the group presented William Grant Still’s masterwork, Minette Fontaine at the Marigny Opera House; it was only the second time this opera was ever performed.

Some Facebook comments I have been asked to post:

The women who founded and run Opera Creole make this magic happen through their passion and sheer grit - it is astonishing. And if you are a New Orleanian who has never seen them perform, you are about to discover another treasure trove of the cultural wealth that is the N.O. See you Fri, Sat, or Sun Evening! And congrats on this amazing shout out in the New Yorker! Aria Monette Givonna Joseph
