Recommended Posts

Seattle Opera and San Francisco Opera have announced their 2015-16 seasons this week.

Seattle Opera is back to six productions (*=debut) in Aidan Lang's first full season at SO:

  • Summer opera #1 is Nabucco (Aug 8-22) with Jamie Barton* with Gordon Hawkins, Mary Elizabeth Williams, and Christian van Horn* in one cast and Weston Hurt, Raffaella Angeletti*, and Andreas Bauer* in the other.
  • The special production add-on is Jack Perla's An American Dream (Aug 21 and 23) with Morgan Smith, D'Ana Lombard*, Hae Ji Chang*, Nina Yoshida Nelson*, and Adam Lau. (Not included in subscription price.)

  • Pearl Fishers (Oct 17-31) with Brett Polegato, John Tessier, Maureen McKay*, and Jonathan Lemalu* in one cast and Keith Phares, Elizabeth Zharoff*, Anthony Kalil,* and Joo Wan Kang* in the other
  • Marriage of Figaro (Jan 16-30) with Shenyang*, Nuccia Focile, Bernarda Bobro*, Morgan Smith, and Karin Moshegain in one cast and Aubrey Allcock, Talise Trevigne*, Caitlin Lynch, John Moore*, and Elizabeth Pojanowski in the other. Aidan Lang directs.
  • Mary Stuart (Feb 27-March 12) with Andrew Owens*, Weston Hurt, and Michael Todd Simpson with Christine Rice and Mary Elizabeth Williams in one cast and Joyce El-Khoury* and Kerry Alkema* in the other.
  • Flying Dutchman (May 7-21) with Greer Grimsley, Alwyn Mellor, and Nikolai Schukoff* in one cast and Alfred Walker, Wendy Bryn Harmer, and David Danholt (co-winner of last summer's Wagner Competition) in the other.

The 2015-16 season will be David Gockley's last heading San Francisco Opera. I'm going to need a bulk ticket deal on flights to the Bay Area.
