“Singers shine brightly” – The South Florida Classical Review

Sat 11 Nov, 2017 - Sat 2 Dec, 2017

There’s a reason the critics are fawning over Lucia. There’s a reason the audience is cheering with thunderous applause. It’s the same reason that you need to see this production of Donizetti’s Italian operatic masterpiece Lucia di Lammermoor.

Lucia is the unlucky Scottish girl who becomes a pawn in her family’s plot to revive its fortunes, is forced into a marriage against her will, and succumbs to insanity on her wedding night. Experience this haunting, atmospheric opera, complete with crumbling castles and ghostly apparitions, plus a breathtaking mad scene that will have you pinned to your seat. Come see why audiences continue to flock to this timeless—and bloody—romantic classic. Featuring Anna Christy, acclaimed star of the Metropolitan Opera and San Francisco Opera

The Rest of the Season:

Jan 27 – Feb 10 | Salome by Richard Strauss

  • In his palace in ancient Jerusalem, King Herod lusts after the beautiful princess Salome, who flirts but repeatedly rejects him. After prodding, Salome agrees to dance when the King promises she can have any wish she wants. Her “Dance of the Seven Veils” turns out to have a bloody price. The opera was so shocking when it first appeared it was banned in Vienna and London. Today, it still sends shivers through the audience with its depiction of the depravity of King Herod’s court. Featuring Melody Moore, who has graced opera stages across the globe, and has a new CD that was just released on the Pentatone label.

Mar 17 – Mar 31 | Orfeo ed Euridices by Christoph Willibald Gluck

  • Based on the mythical story of Orpheus, this masterpiece tells the compelling story of the grief-stricken musician and poet Orfeo, who proves how far one man will go to prove his devotion to his wife when he travels to the terrifying depths of Hell to bring back his beloved Euridice alive. Featuring countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, hailed by The New York Times as an “utterly riveting” performer

Apr 28 – May 5 | Florencia en el Amazonas by Daniel Catan

  • Inspired by characters drawn from the writings of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, this lyrical new opera takes us into a magical realm.

Come see if she finds a way to reunite with him in this mythical tale.
