Izaht

Appleby Catalogue W number: 
W055
Year Composed: 

Category:

An opera in four acts, Izaht has a complicated composition history.  Villa-Lobos worked on the opera from 1912 to 1914, and then added a fourth act in 1918, and replaced the third act in 1921.  The whole work was first performed in 1940, and fully staged as an opera in 1958 (which Appleby gives its own catalogue #: W577). - Tarasti (1995), p. 391

Recordings: 

I've seen no recordings of the opera or its overture.

Performances: 

Neither are there any records of performances in the Villa-Lobos Website Concerts database.  Villa-Lobos conducted the Overture with the Stadium Symphony Orchestra in New York in July of 1957.
