2018-2019 Operas within Driving Distance

September 26. Mozart: Don Giovanni

September 26.  Mozart:  Don Giovanni
This production was co-produced with three other opera companies, including Houston, where I saw it. It is a visually interesting production, with Don Giovanni onstage, if in another room, for the entire night. The projections all feature the lines of Leporello's list. If you have a chance to see this (it was an HD production) as well as listen, it will be worth it.

September 19. Wagner: Lohengrin

September 19.  Wagner:  Lohengrin
This is the performance of Lohengrin which took place without the new sets. Next week we begin a series of performances from Covent Garden.

September 12. Armienta: Bless Me, Ultima

September 12.  Armienta:  Bless Me, Ultima
From Albuquerque's Opera Southwest, California-based Hector Armienta wrote an opera based on Rudolfo Anaya's seminal novel, Bless me, Ultima. This is the world premiere performance.
