    March 5: Leonore by Ludwig van Beethoven (1805) (with Marjorie Owens, Simon O'Neill, Alan Held) at Washington Concert Opera, Washington, DC

    March 8: Dead Man Walking by Jake Heggie (2000) (with Kate Lindsey and Susan Graham) at Washington National Opera (WNO), Washington, DC

    March 15: Champion by Terence Blanchard (2013) (with Arthur Woodley, Aubrey Allicock, Denyce Graves) at WNO, Washington, DC



    I believe that Opera Lafayette and Washington Concert Opera collaborated on their seasons since they will be presenting both other contemporaneous iterations of what we know as Fidelio. Should be interesting to be able to compare - especially Beethoven's earlier composition titled Leonore, which he re-worked over the years until he premiered it as Fidelio in 1814.
    Very interesting line up.

    I know that some of Opera Lafayette's performances have been released on CD, and I'm really hoping that will be the case with Gaveaux's opera. I have Paer's Leonora and the 1805 version of Fidelio on disc (as well as Mayr's L'Amor Coniugale), so the Gaveaux is really the "missing link" for me. It would be very interesting to hear his treatment of Bouilly's drama and compare it to all the others. For example, I think Pizarre is a spoken role in Gaveaux.

    Wednesday and Thursday nights (2/22 & 23), I will attend the dress rehearsals for Seattle Opera's Katya Kabanova. This is a first time for me, very excited to see it. This is my birthday treat so will be happy to be in an audience two nights in a row. You can count on my review after I see it for the 4th time in a few weeks.
