Synopsis by Sarah Sloboda
Giacomo Meyerbeer's celebrated opera L'Africaine comes to life on-stage in this performance by the chorus, ballet, and orchestra of the San Francisco Opera. Swelling with French vocals, the story follows a Portuguese explorer to Africa, where he complicates his life with his love interest in the African queen. The entanglement in a love triangle permeates the explorer's excursion. DVD is subtitled in English.
