A THOUSAND ACRES

DIE TOTE STADT

Opera Colorado

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.

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.

AS DONNA ELVIRA  |  MINNESOTA OPERA

Donna Elvira

DON GIOVANNI

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.
