The story of Orpheus in the underworld is about all of us. We all have something of Orpheus in us. Who wouldn't want to turn back the clock every now and then and stick to the happiness of the past? That's why the Orpheus story has always inspired artists of all times. This was the starting point for director Monique Wagemakers in this new opera production.

Mozart & Friends - little OPERA theatre of ny

MOZART & FRIENDS spotlights several arias from little OPERA's postponed production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's THE SHEPHERD KING in a newly commissioned singing translation from Mark Herman and Ronnie Apter, based upon the libretto by Pietro Metastasio, and additional music by Rameau, Handel, and Chevalier de Saint-Georges.

Eugene Onegin - Metropolitan Opera

The pain of unrequited love is portrayed unforgettably by two of today's greatest stars. Renée Fleming is musically and dramatically radiant as the shy Tatiana, who falls in love with the worldly Onegin, played with devastating charisma by Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Their mesmerizing vocalism and chemistry explode in one of opera's most heartbreaking final scenes. With Valery Gergiev on the podium conducting Tchaikovsky's passionate score, this performance is one for the ages.

Celebrating the Summer Season - San Francisco Opera

Eugene Brancoveanu in Recital - San José Opera

Featuring famed baritone Eugene Brancoveanu & resident conductor Christopher James Ray, this masterpiece of German lieder uses vivid, poetic imagery to weave an intimate, heart wrenching, tale of a poet's love - and the harrowing, emotionally cathartic journey he takes after that love's been lost.

Billy Budd - Des Moines Metro Opera

One of opera's most grandly scaled masterpieces, Benjamin Britten's Billy Budd tells the story of the persecution and destruction of a young sailor by a predatory master-at-arms. From rollicking sea shanties to bombastic choral episodes, Britten's searing opera roars to life in a spectacular, new production that transforms a British man o' war into a crucible for human faith and error.
