2018-2019 Operas within Driving Distance

Verdi: La Forza del Destino. June 29

Anna Netrebko and Jonas Kaufman scored rave reviews as Leonora and Don Alvaro. Pictured are Anna Netrebko as Leonora and Ferruccio Furlanetto as Padre Guardiano in Act II.

Tchaikovsky: The Queen of Spades. June 22

The director of this production of Queen of Spades puts Tchaikovsky himself into the opera, letting him morph into Prince Yeletsky, who loves and loses Lisa. Vladimir Stoyanova sings the prince, with Eva-Marie Westbroek as Lisa and Aleksandr Antonenko as Ghermann, the gambler. Felicity Palmer scored a triumph as the Countess, Lisa's grandmother.

Verdi: Simon Boccanegra. June 15

Verdi's story of politics and revenge in 14th-century Genoa returned last fall to the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, with Carlos Alvarez as Simon Boccanegra and Ferrucio Furlanetto as his archrival Jacopo Fiesco.

Wagner: Siegfried. June 8

Nina Stemme is Brunnhilde with Stefan Vinke as Siegfried, John Lundgren as the Wanderer, and Gerhard Siegel as Mime in the third installment of the Ring of the Nibelung at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, last fall.
