Notes & Reviews:

First performed in 1920, "Amaya" is considered the high point of musical theatre in the Basque language. Set in the eighth century at a crucial moment in the history of the Basque people, as they sought to affirm their identity through the spread of Christianity, it is a work of great dramatic and musical intensity. There is much to enjoy here: wonderful melodies, fine singing and excellent choral writing. Recommended.
