UPCOMING PROJECTS

WOZZECK @ Des Moines Metro Opera, July 6 - 15, 2019:
Directed by Kristine McIntyre. 
Conducted by David Neely.
Set and Costumes by Vita Tzykun.
Lighting by Kate Ashton. 
The first all-female design team in DMMO history! The quintessential “modern” opera, Wozzeck still hasn’t lost its bite. Alban Berg’s masterpiece combines music of intense emotional power with a profoundly dramatic story. Berated by his captain and overcome by jealousy, Wozzeck tries to make sense of his fragmented, dreamlike mental state with disastrous results. Nearly 100 years after its premiere, Wozzeck still sounds dramatically modern. But the style that shocked listeners in 1925 sounds seamlessly natural today, so perfectly suited to character and incident that the drama and its soundtrack unfold together with utter clarity.

LE NOZZE DI FIGARO @ Wheeler Opera House, Aspen Music Festival in Aspen, CO, August 13, 15, 17, 2019:
Widely considered one of the greatest operas ever written, The Marriage of Figaro is a fast-paced comedy that recounts a single day of scheming in pursuit of love—and lust—in the palace of Count Almaviva. Figaro pursues marriage to his beloved Susanna while the Count has designs on her as well. Full of witty manipulations and resonant melodies, this artistic masterpiece makes us laugh, but also reveals the depth of human tenderness.
Directed by Edward Berkeley. 
Conducted by Jane Glover.
Set by John Kasarda.
Lighting by Kate Ashton.
