    2020/2021 Season

    DALLAS OPERA 2020-2021:

    Mozart - The Marriage of Figaro
    Cast: Phillipe Sly, Golda Schultz, Virginie Verrez, Sara Gartland, Andrei Bondarenko

    Wagner - Lohengrin
    Cast: Gwyn Hughes Jones, Anne Schwanewilms, Mark Delavan

    Talbot - The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (World Premiere)
    Cast: Lucas Meachem, Sasha Cooke, Andriana Chuchman

    Gluck - Orfeo ed Euridice
    Cast: Jamie Barton, Madison Leonard

    Puccini - Tosca
    Cast: Jennifer Rowley, Gianluca Terranova, Ambrogio Maestri

    A pretty good mix this season. Very interesting casts for Figaro and Lohengrin, and a production of Orfeo from Portland Opera that piques my interest. I don't know Joby Talbot's music yet, but Dallas Opera had a very successful world premiere from him a few years ago in Everest (which I'll get to see here in Austin in a week!), and I think the choice to adapt Diving Bell is very interesting.


    HOUSTON OPERA 2020-2021:

    Bizet - Carmen
    Cast: Isabel Leonard, Anita Hartig, Andrea Care

    Massenet - Werther
    Cast: Arturo Chacon-Cruz, Ana Maria Martinez

    Thompson - The Snowy Day (World Premiere)
    Cast: Julia Bullock

    Wagner - Parsifal
    Cast: Russell Thomas, Christina Goerke, Ryan McKinny, Kwangchul Youn

    Rossini - La Cenerentola
    Cast: Emily D’Angelo, Jack Swanson, Patrick Carfizzi

    Mazzolli - Breaking the Waves
    Cast: Lauren Snouffer, Alexander Elliot, Zoie Reams

    Rodgers - The Sound of Music
    Cast: Jeanine de Bique, Michael Mayes, Megan Marino

    Not as exciting as their current season - with a musical, two revivals of productions they own (Carmen and Cenerentola) and for the 4th year in a row their world premiere commission is Christmas fluff. But it's not like I have the energy to spend 7 of my weekends driving to Houston anyway, so I'll be content that they have 3 shows I really want to see. Werther and Parsifal both pair great casts with interesting-looking rented productions, and I've been dying to see Breaking the Waves, for which they've imported an acclaimed production from Edinburgh.

    Could we please make this thread a "sticky?" It won't be all that long before a number of leading opera houses begin to release information on their 2020-21 seasons.

    Your wish is my command! TBH I didn't know I had the admin rights to do it!

    I'm surprised and delighted that the Simon McBurney Magic Flute production is coming to the Met (I assumed it was going to be the Robert Lepage production). I guess the Barrie Kosky Fiery Angel is too naughty for Live in HD, but I'm happy both Die Frau ohne Schatten and Il Pirata will get a recording.

    I've been planning my next trip to NYC to coincide with Die Frau ohne Schatten (and Il Pirata as a bonus), but now with the McBurney production, and with Die Frau getting an HD, I might go later and see Il Pirata, Billy Budd and The Magic Flute!

    Spoilt for choice?! Wonderful though as the Met season is a corker.

    Bavarian State Opera

    Probably the biggest news is the Tristan und Isolde with Munich's "dream team" of Kaufmann and Harteros.
