    Several internationally-acclaimed stars will again take the stage at historic Music Hall as the Cincinnati Opera Company launches its 92nd season on Thursday, June 14, 2012. The season opens with a double bill of Leoncavallo’s I Pagliacci and Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi, with performances June 14 and 16. This is followed two weeks later with four performances of Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, starring bass-baritone Jonathan Lemalu as Porgy and soprano Measha Brueggergosman as Bess. The season wraps up July 26 and 28 with Verdi’s La Traviata, starring real-life spouses Ailyn Perez and Stephen Costello as Violetta and Alfredo.
