2018-2019 Operas within Driving Distance

The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess

This is one of the extra performances scheduled after the success of the new production last fall. At least one Oklahoman is in the cast.

December 28. Mozart: The Magic Flute

The special holiday edition of The Magic Flute, condensed to only 100 minutes playing time, so that children can enjoy it in the theater. Ying Fang and David Portillo are Pamina and Tamino.

December 21. Verdi: MacBeth

Shakespeare's "Scottish Play" has its most-performed operatic version in Verdi's score. Željko Lučić and Anna Netrebko play the tragic Thane and his wife, whose ambition becomes more than her mind can handle.

December 14. Tchaikovsky: The Queen of Spades

Larissa Davidova sings the title character, actually a countess, who knows she will die if she gives up the secret of the three cards which won her a great fortune many years ago. Hermann is her granddaughter's suitor who learns that she knows the secret and wants it.

December 7. Philip Glass: Akhnaten

Emperor Akhenaten introduces monotheism to Egypt; the priests do not like it. Anthony Roth Costanza is Emperor Akhenaten. J'Nai Bridges is Nefertiti and Dísella Lárusdóttiris Queen Tye.

November 30. Bottesini: Ali Baba

Opera Southwest has presented several operas which have needed reconstruction from original parts over 100 years old, including Faccio's Amleto, in the past few years. This is another opera which had been nearly destroyed with its orchestration reduced for puppet theater, and for which the original materials had to be carefully researched. Monica Yunus sings the role of Delia, Ali Baba's love.

November 23. Bellini: Norma

Lindsay Ohse and Olivia Vote star as Norma and Adalgisa in Opera Southwest's orma.

November 16. Mozart: The Marriage of Figaro

This is a performance first broadcast in Milwaukee in September, 2016.
