    Wow... I started thinking how long have I been away or did I enter a parallel universe on my return journey home?

    Nope! Still in the same universe. I said might.

    An unofficial listing for l’Opéra de Paris but it looks comprehensive.

    Ooooh. Time to get that passport I've been putting off getting. I might have to see Les Huguenots and that new opera with Barbara Hannigan. (Also stoked to see what Barrie Kosky does with Prince Igor the following season.)

    Les Troyens staged by Tcherniakov with Elina Garanca is a must-see. I'll consider a trip to Paris to see it. January 2019.

    Ohhh. That does sound good!


    What about a Tristan und Isolde directed by Peter Sellars?

    L.A. Opera


    https://www.laopera.org/season/1819-...-opera-season/

    My friend Arleen in LA sent me the line-up for next year. She asked if I might be interested in seeing both Satyagraha and Vampyr, so told her that I would love to see both.

    Vampyr, apparently is a mixed media production to be staged in the Ace Hotel - a creepy auditiorium dating to 1927 done in Spanish Gothic (restored), should be perfect for Vampyr!

    Silly me -- I thought they were performing Marschner's Der Vampyr!

    Anyway, La Clemenza di Tito with Russell Thomas looks appealing.

    Houston Grand Opera 2018-2019

    THE FLYING DUTCHMAN – Andrzej Dobber, Rachel Willis-Sørensen, The production by Tomer Zvulun is playing Atlanta & Cincinnati first, so maybe Mary can tell me in advance how it is . But I want to hear Rachel sing, so I think I’m in. Also, Houston’s orchestra - with director Patrick Summers - really excels at Wagner.

    LA BOHEME – Nicole Heaston, Ivan Magri. Revival production by John Caird. I’m sure it’s a fine cast, but I’m bohemed out.

    FLORENCIA EN EL AMAZONAS – Ana Maria Martinez. Francesca Zambello revival. I’ve been wanting to see this one, and this is an ideal production.

    THE PEARL FISHERS – Lawrence Brownlee, Mariusz Kwiecien, Andrea Carroll. They are using the ultra-colorful stage settings of Zandra Rhodes (Chicago, Seattle). And the cast is fantastic. I love this opera, and they’ve provided extra value for me on this one. I’m in.

    DON GIOVANNI – Philippe Sly, Ailyn Perez, Ryan McKinny, Melody Moore, Ben Bliss. Hey, that’s another good cast, I might…. They’re doing the production by Kasper Holten designed by Es Devlin?!?!?!?! I’ve never been so excited to see an opera for the 4th time within 2 years.

    THE PHOENIX – Thomas Hampson, Luca Pisaroni, Joseph Kaiser. The world premiere this season. Hampson & Pisaroni portray Lorenzo da Ponte at different times in his life. Sounds pretty interesting. The da Ponte angle might help make it attractive to other opera companies.

    It’s a fairly conservative season as expected. And they’re down to 6 productions; normally there’s a December production, I wonder if they cancelled something there. They are still dealing with financial repercussions of Hurricane Harvey.

    But I’m surprised to find I’m actually way more interested in this season than the last. They’ve justified a few of these mainstays with interesting A/A+ casts, and frankly I’m astonished I’ll get to see this Kasper Holten/Es Devlin production. I will probably go to 5 out of 6.

    That would be a great choice for first Wagner opera. It was the first one I really enjoyed

    These both sound wonderful. I love Lawrence Brownlee and Ryan McKinny sang and acted a terrific Kurwenal in Berlin a couple of years ago.

    DALLAS OPERA 2018-2019 SEASON

    THE FLYING DUTCHMAN – Greer Grimsley, Anja Kampe, Jay Hunter Morris – Director Louis Désiré (Sao Paulo).

    CARMEN – Stephanie d’Oustrac, Stephen Costello, Vanessa Vasquez – David McVicar production (Glyndebourne).

    MANON LESCAUT – Kristin Lewis, Gregory Kunde, Musa Ngqungwana

    LA BOHEME – Pumeza Matshikiza, Jean-Francois Borras, Nicholas Brownlee, Sam Ramey – Director Tomer Zvulun

    FALSTAFF – Mark Delavan, Angela Meade, Quinn Kelsey, Stephanie Blythe, Andrea Silvestrelli


    A very conservative, mass-appeal oriented season, but some really promising casts. Dallas & Houston have dueling Dutchmen: I think Houston will win production values and orchestra, but Dallas wins cast. Anja Kampe?! Wow.

    AUSTIN OPERA 2018-2019 SEASON

    OTELLO (Verdi) – Isaachah Savage, Marina Costa-Jackson, Michael Chioldi

    SILENT NIGHT (Puts)

    SOLDIER SONGS (Little) – Outside of regular season. To be staged in a more intimate space.

    Pretty happy for Otello and the contemporary operas. Texas has 3 Bohemes next year, and no bel canto : (
