AS LISA | DES MOINES METRO OPERA
THE QUEEN OF SPADES
Des Moines Metro Opera
Tchaikovsky anticipated the 20th century with this surreal masterpiece about obsession and psychosis, qualities given all the more power juxtaposed with the elegant milieu and music of its 18th century setting. Gherman parlays his love for the young aristocrat Lisa into a life-and-death wager, confronting the aged Countess, known as the Queen of Spades. Ms. Gartland returns to Des Moines Metro Opera in her role debut as Lisa.

AS SUSANNA | THE DALLAS OPERA
THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO
The Dallas Opera
Figaro and Susanna want to marry — but their boss, the predatory Count, has other ideas! Not only that: there are more domestic dramas here than at Downton Abbey, including a hormonally charged teenager causing havoc, and an older woman who says she has the right to marry Figaro! Ms. Gartland debuts the role of Susanna with the Dallas Opera.
