DIE TOTE STADT
Opera Colorado presents a new production of composer Erich Korngold’s rare operatic gem, Die tote Stadt (The Dead City). We follow Paul, a widowed artist unraveled by grief. Life is turned upside down when Paul meets the bright and passionate Marietta—the mirror image of his late wife, Marie. This haunting drama filled with lush cinematic music will leave you questioning what is real and what is only a dream.

AS MARIETTA/MARIE | OPERA COLORADO
COSÌ FAN TUTTE
The Dallas Opera
Featuring Metropolitan Opera powerhouse Rodney Gilfry as the trouble-making Don Alfonso; two vocally incandescent and celebrated stars Elizabeth DeShong and Sara Gartland as the duped sisters; and as the chauvinistic men who should have known better: David Portillo, praised for his warm, sexy tenor; and Dallas favorite and Grammy Award-winner Lucas Meachem. Elizabeth Askren conducts this production from San Francisco Opera.
March 24, 26, & 29
AS DONNA ELVIRA | MINNESOTA OPERA
Don Giovanni is an egotistical and infamous womanizer, brazen in his shameless seductions. But his betrayals soon catch up to him when divine retribution exacts the ultimate price. Mozart’s sharp and otherworldly opera seamlessly blends dark comedy with biting social commentary, all set to some of opera’s most stirring music. Ms. Gartland appears as Donna Elvira in this production of Don Giovanni at Minnesota Opera.

AS JUDITH | DES MOINES METRO OPERA
Des Moines Metro Opera
The mysterious Duke Bluebeard welcomes his new bride Judith into his ominous castle, where rumors have been swirling concerning one question: what happened to his previous three wives? Shrouded in the secrecy of seven forbidden rooms, Judith desperately tries to uncover the terrifying secrets that Bluebeard had hoped to keep locked away forever. With its immense, cinematic score, Bartók’s psychological opera-thriller will leave you entranced as Judith reveals, door-by-door, Bluebeard’s dark past. Ms. Gartland debuts the role of Judith in Bluebeard's Castle at Des Moines Metro Opera.
