The second installment in City Opera’s Ópera en Español series explores the very beginnings of Spanish-language opera with the American premiere of Literes’s circa 1713 work Los Elementos. The distinctive melodic contours and lively rhythms of the Spanish Baroque animate Earth, Air, Fire, and Water in this allegorical drama composed for the court of Philip V.
