Full Orchestral Score . Piano vocal score and individual parts 1 and 2, sold separately. Moliere’s 300 year old play “Le malade imaginaire” is adapted into a three act comedic opera by American composer James Nathaniel Holland (adaption, music and libretto). It’s the story of a hypochondriac, studio mogul who is willing to marry off his daughter to his celebrity doctor’s son to save on expenses. From the other side, his ambitious, hypocritical wife is trying to swindle his fortune. Only his long-time secretary and partner can save him and unite his daughter with the young man who she actually loves. Set in 1930’s Los Angeles, Hollywood with early jazz elements, quasi musical numbers that will delight and tickle your audiences today. A small cast opera of about 8 singers (2 tenors, soprano, mezzo, coloratura, 2 baritones, and bass baritone) with no chorus and relatively small sized orchestra, this piece is perfect for any university or small opera house, and it’s libretto is originally in English. Suitable for all audiences. Full orchestration: picc, fl12, asax12, cl12, bsn, hrn12, tpt, trom, timp (misc), drum set, pno, strings. Duration: 1 hour and 45 minutes. Playlist link:
