The Magic Opal is the last of the stage works of Albˆ©niz to be brought to life since its original premiere 1893. This lyric comedy shows Albeniz's innate talent to compose in the style of Gilbert and Sullivan, causing George Bernard Shaw to say in a review of the work that the composer was ’Äúwell ahead of his competitors’Äù. A fantasy tale that takes place in Greece with pirates and magic stones, Albeniz is at home in the lyric comedy theatre, lending the work with his own Spanish aesthetic touch and flourish. The date of the premiˆ®re on February 27, 2010 marks precisely to the day the 117th anniversary of the London last performance of this work.
