    Thanks to Ann for starting this thread, and MAuer for posting the SF Opera's upcoming season for reminding me that it's that time of year when opera houses start posting their planned seasons.

    I haven't started looking at the European seasons yet, but did look through the major U.S. companies to see what's coming up. Several big companies haven't posted yet: Met, Houston and WNO.

    For those who are interested, here are links to the upcoming season for the companies who have:

    Chicago Lyric Opera

    http://lyricoperamedia.s3.amazonaws....onBrochure.pdf

    Note: Looks like an interesting season, albeit with no new/contemporary operas scheduled. Highlight: A new production of Les Troyens w/Christine Goerke (Cassandre), Sophie Koch (Didon), Brandon Jovanovich (Enee)

    The Dallas Opera:

    http://dallasopera.org/news/2016/01/...6-2017-season/

    2016-2017 DALLAS OPERA SEASON

    EUGENE ONEGIN

    MOBY-DICK
    (Jake Heggie and Gene Scheer)

    MADAME BUTTERFLY

    THE TURN OF THE SCREW

    NORMA

    Note: Onegin stars OL interviewee Ailyn Perez as Tatiana and Stephen Costello as Lensky.

    The cast for Eugene Onegin is superb but I'm surprised to see Ailyn Perez and Stephen Costello on the same bill.

    I agree. I think it speaks to how long in advance opera productions are booked that these things happen (to those unaware, the two were married but later split).

    If you look below, at Santa Fe Opera's schedule for this summer, the same thing happens again, with Perez and Costello scheduled to sing the leads in Gounod's Romeo et Juliette. The scary thing is that, in Santa Fe, the company takes pride in operating as something of a workshop. The season begins in July with a new opera added each week until all 5 productions are running in sequence for two weeks in August. Singers are booked for the season and under contract to be on site. Joyce DiDonato caused a minor scandal some years ago, when she, well, ran off to get married (I don't know that she remains so...).

    Santa Fe Opera

    Note: A solid cast for Capriccio with Amanda Majesty, Susan Graham and Eric Owens


    Los Angeles Opera

    http://www.laopera.org/season/16-17-season/

    Note: Looks like LA has an interesting season ahead, although I'm not so sure about Domingo singing Macbeth. Diana Damrau is scheduled to sing all 4 heroines in Tales of Hoffmann.

    The narration part of Akhnaten has to be sung in the language of wherever it is performed (the rest is in ancient languages). Poor Tim Mead had to learn it in Dutch which is NOT a good language to sing in.

    I saw it at ENO in the 80s before I liked it, and now I'm kicking myself that I wasn't ready to appreciate it.

    Hoffmann, will you see Hoffmann? (I've waited a long time to ask you that!)

    I'm leaving for LA tomorrow morning for a week (temps out there are hovering around 85 F/30 C). I plan to ask my hostess if she would like company for one of the productions there next season - she has had season tickets in the past, but is a real fan of contemporary opera and is disappointed when the pickings are slim, so might not have maintained her tickets. She also is of an age where she prefers to not drive at night which, of course, I can help with.

    So, it might be that I end up visiting for Akhnaten rather than Hoffmann, but that also would be ok, since I liked Appomattox so much.

    How wonderful!!



    And I'm sure the trip next year will be exciting whatever you see.

    What an eclectic mix! Truly something for everyone including baroque fans! (Though I confess I find Cavalleria Rusticana and Sancta Susanna an unusual pairing...)

    I like the idea of a "Catégorie Jonas." I see he'll be making his role debut as Hoffmann in Paris this coming November.

    I'll believe it when the performance is happening given Der Jonas' tendency towards cancellation.

    Wow, what a spectacular season! The Met has a thing or two to learn from Opéra de Paris.

    ***Please could this thread be made sticky***

    Dutch National Opera

    I wouldn't mind seeing Prince Igor.

    Manon Lescaut

    ... In the novel by Abbé Prévost on which the libretto is based, Manon’s lover Des Grieux tells the story. But here, director Andrea Breth has Manon, sung by Eva-Maria Westbroek, look back on her own life. The starting point for Breth’s Manon Lescaut is the death of Manon in an American desert. In the hallucinations of her last moments, she remembers important episodes from her life.


    Mmm. Not sure about this.
