FORTUNATO (A Chamber Opera in 3 Scenes)
10 characters; minimum of 5 singers needed; piano/vocal score with background chorus parts which can be sung by the principals. Chorus parts have alternate arrangements for soloists.
Based on the tragic farce; story of Amaranta, the champion sharpshooter (a female character); sung by contralto or mezzo.
Gideon completed her only opera, Fortunato: An Opera in Three Scenes, in 1958, Although the opera has never received a performance, it may be regarded as a central work within Gideon's style and oeuvre. Gideon fashioned her own libretto for Fortunato from Serafin and Joaquin Alvarez Quintero's 1912 farce of the same name, creating a uniquely personal work with distinct connections between music and biography.
