Don GiovanniDon Giovanni

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
June 13 & 15

Legendary lover. Sadistic manipulator. Cold-blooded villain. Has there ever been a more irrepressible rogue than Don Giovanni? Mozart’s 1787 opera, subtitled “Il Dissoluto Punito” (“the reprobate punished”), follows Giovanni as he forces his way into the hearts of women and taunts the men who love them. When an attempted conquest ends in murder, Giovanni receives a spectral visitor who delivers his comeuppance. This time, love is hell.

Der RosenkavalierDer Rosenkavalier

Richard Strauss
June 27 & 29

It starts off simply enough: Boy meets girl and falls head over heels. But in opera—as in life—the path to happily-ever-after can be a thorny one. A Viennese noblewoman relishes in the affections of her young lover, Octavian, but quietly dreads the day his heart finds true love. And then, it happens: Octavian spies the lovely Sophie, and he’s forever changed. After learning she’s promised to an oafish, old baron, Octavian hatches a hilarious plot to set her free, with the help of a surprising ally.

Galileo GalileiGalileo Galilei

Philip Glass
July 11, 14, 17, 19 and 21

On the verge of death and blind from years of staring heavenward, Galileo pieces together the visions, dreams, and questions that have brought him to this place. And so begins a journey in reverse through the remarkable events of Galileo’s extraordinary life: his imprisonment for heresy, his defense of science through the Inquisition, and back to his earliest days of inspiration, invention, and discovery. Through the lens of one man’s incredible life, Galileo Galilei explores questions of religion and science, faith and truth.

AidaAida

Giuseppe Verdi
July 18, 20, 26 and 28

Loyalty or love–which should prevail when everything is at stake? Aida, an Ethiopian princess enslaved by her enemy Egypt, finds herself helplessly drawn to Radames, her captor. Caught between warring nations, she faces an impossible choice. Should she betray Radames to protect her beloved homeland? Or surrender completely to true love?
