“Madama Butterfly”
Puccini — From the 2015/2016 Season
Saturday, June 23 at 1 p.m.

Anthony Minghella’s beautiful, atmospheric production enhances Puccini’s drama of doomed love. Soprano Kristine Opolais brings all of her passionate commitment to her portrayal of Cio-Cio-San, the teenage geisha who gives up everything for Lt. Pinkerton. Tenor Roberto Alagna is the American naval officer who does not understand the depth of Cio-Cio-San’s love and whose subsequent marriage to an American woman precipitates Butterfly’s suicide. Mezzo-soprano Maria Zifchak is Suzuki, Cio-Cio-San’s faithful servant, and baritone Dwayne Croft plays the American consul Sharpless, who tries to avert the tragedy. Karel Mark Chichon conducts.

Saturday, July 7 at 1 p.m.

Soprano Anna Netrebko is Leonora, the young noblewoman in love with the troubadour of the title — tenor Yonghoon Lee — but also pursued by Count di Luna, sung by the great baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick completes the quartet of principals in her signature role of Azucena, the mysterious gypsy woman who sets the dramatic events in motion.

“Eugene Onegin”
Tchaikovsky — from the 2006/2007 Season
Saturday, July 14 at 1 p.m.

The pain of unrequited love is portrayed unforgettably by two of opera’s greatest stars. Soprano Renée Fleming is musically and dramatically radiant as the shy Tatiana, who falls in love with the worldly Eugene Onegin, played with devastating charisma by baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Their mesmerizing vocalism and chemistry explode in one of opera’s most heartbreaking final scenes. With Valery Gergiev on the podium conducting Tchaikovsky’s passionate score, this performance is one for the ages.
