Hawaii Opera Theatre

A year ago, Hawai‘i Opera Theatre was adjusting to the abrupt departure of its executive director, and a debt of about $2 million. It cancelled one production this season, but a new leader is in place, and the season closer has all the makings of a hit.

  Today, an enduring mentorship and friendship between Johannes Brahms and Antonín Dvorák.

Today's program was inspired by the Hawaiian Oboe Legacy project of J. Scott Janusch. Scott has been performing with the Hawai‘i Symphony Orchestra for many years and wanted to leave a legacy to the people of Hawai‘i. He chose to created a project involving the making of a kauila wood oboe that will be left in the care of the non-profit Live Music Awareness to be shared with Hawai‘i. Next Monday, May 20th, at the Doris Duke Theatre, Chamber Music Hawai‘i celebrates the instrument's completion with its final concert.
