The last opera by one of the longest-lived composers in history, Capriccio turns the tables on audience members, giving them a glimpse of life in the theater from the other side of the curtain. Surprisingly (or unsurprisingly), what happens behind the scenes is filled with as much drama and comedy as what takes place onstage! The plot revolves around the Countess — a supporter of the arts, just like you — and her courtship by both a composer and a playwright (poet?). In choosing one over the other, she plans to answer this age-old question: Which is more important to opera, the music or the words?
A winning cast comes together for Phelim McDermott's clever vision of Mozart's comedy about the sexes, set in a carnivalesque funhouse environment inspired by 1950s Coney Island — complete with bearded ladies, fire eaters, and a Ferris wheel. Manipulating the action are the Don Alfonso of Christopher Maltman and the Despina of Tony Award winner Kelli O'Hara, with Amanda Majeski, Serena Malfi, Ben Bliss, and Adam Plachetka as the pairs of young lovers who test each other's faithfulness. David Robertson conducts.
While Don Giovanni dances at the edge of a precipice, three extraordinary women pursue him, each seeking their own reckoning, pleasure, and liberation. Is the great seducer destroying or empowering the women he encounters? What story does the sublime music tell? This visceral new production wrestles with Mozart's elusive masterpiece in our present cultural moment.
A black activist is wrongfully incarcerated. His wife, Leah, disguises herself to infiltrate the system and free him. But when injustice reigns, one woman's grit may not be enough to save her love. Featuring the voices of imprisoned people, this daring adaptation pits corruption against courage, hate against hope.
Jer-ry! Jer-ry! Jer-ry! It's The Jerry Springer Show as you've never seen it before — with passionate arias, soaring ballads, and giant production numbers. While the studio audience cheers, a parade of bickering guests fight and curse until violence breaks out and Jerry (Terrence Mann) must face his trickiest guest ever, the devil himself (Will Swenson). Deeply in tune with the chaos and unrestrained id of our times, Jerry Springer — The Opera, a gleefully profane musical by Richard Thomas (music, book, lyrics) and Stewart Lee (book and additional lyrics) is an outrageous celebration of our national ritual of public humiliation and redemption. Jerry Springer — The Opera, a winner of numerous awards (including an Olivier Award for Best New Musical), gets its off-Broadway premiere in this production from the New Group. Chris Bailey choreographs; John Rando directs.
Thanks to an ancestor who loved torturing witches, the Baronet of Ruddigore is cursed — if he doesn't commit a crime every day, his life will end in agony, and the curse will be handed down to the next in line. No wonder he doesn't stick around to follow through with his destiny, leaving the title and the curse with his younger brother. But when the ghosts of the Baronet's past reveal themselves in the Ruddigore Castle picture gallery, he's forced out of hiding and back into the role of daily criminal. But destiny and curses aren't the most flexible of things, so the clever Baronet must figure out a way to make everyone happy in the end, especially himself.
In 1949, Dr. Jacob Bronowski installs a secret alarmed room in his house. Fifty years later, his grandson discovers his secrets, unearthing echoes from across six million years of human history, told from the perspective of a century in which every year is a revolutionary year. Secret Life of Humans is inspired by Yuval Harari's international bestseller, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind.
Sir David McVicar's ravishing new production offers a splendid backdrop for two extraordinary sopranos sharing the title role of the jealous prima donna: Sonya Yoncheva (pictured above) and Anna Netrebko. Vittorio Grigolo and Marcelo Álvarez alternate in the role of Tosca's revolutionary artist lover Cavaradossi, with Željko Lučić and Michael Volle as the depraved police chief Scarpia. Emmanuel Villaume and Bertrand de Billy share conducting duties.
