RIGOLETTO

Saturday, June 28 at 2pm

running time 3:20

Dmitri Hvorostovsky sings the title role of Verdi’s tragic masterpiece in Michael Mayer’s dazzling production set in Las Vegas—the neon-bedecked hit of the 2012–13 season. Matthew Polenzani is the womanizing Duke, and Irina Lungu and Sonya Yoncheva sing Gilda.

 

 

 
 
 

LA RONDINE

Sunday, June 28 at 2pm

running time: 1:55

Composer: Giacomo Puccini
Librettist: Giuseppe Adami

Armiliato; Gheorghiu, Alagna, Oropesa, Brenciu, Ramey

Puccini’s achingly beautiful score charmingly conveys the plight of Magda (the “swallow” of the title) who unexpectedly finds true love with the handsome young Ruggero. But their idyllic and happy life comes to an premature end as she is haunted by the fear that her checkered past will ruin his future. Real-life couple and operatic stars Angela Gheorghiu and Roberto Alagna portray Puccini’s star-crossed lovers. Ezio Frigerio’s elegant and sophisticated art deco sets add a dazzling touch to Nicholas Joël’s production, which premiered in 2008.

 

 
 
 

La Fanciulla del West

Sunday, July 6 at 2pm

running time 3:00

Giacomo Puccini’s La Fanciulla del West (“The Girl of the Golden West”), first heard a century ago, is set in the American West during the California Gold Rush. Peopled with ruthless bandits, rough-talking but goodhearted miners, a cynical sheriff, and one remarkable female tavern-keeper, it tells a story of love, money, justice, and forgiveness that is as thrilling as any Western movie, wrapped in an unmistakably Italian score. You could even call it the world’s first “spaghetti Western.”
