Noteworthy & Now Frontis lg 1015  

1) Krisztina Szabó blends brand new and Baroque in a triple bill at Canadian Opera Company beginning on Oct. 20. The mezzo sings Monteverdi’s Clorinda in Il Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda and Arianna in Lamento d’Arianna. The modern work, a world premiere by Barbara Monk Feldman, is Pyramus and Thisbe, in which Szabó sings one-half of the title’s star-cross’d lovers. 

2) Marian Anderson, Betty Allen, George Shirley and William Warfield are celebrated on Oct. 14 and 15 when the New York Philharmonic presents “In Their Footsteps: Great African–American Singers and their Legacy.” The event, hosted by artist-in-residence Eric Owens, features video footage along with performances by Janai Brugger, Laquita Mitchell, Marietta Simpson and Russell Thomas.

3) Jake Heggie ’s Great Scott has its world premiere at Dallas Opera at the end of the month, with Joyce DiDonato as Arden Scott, an opera star who returns to her hometown to save the local opera company. (See “Composing a Life,” July 2015.) After finishing its Texas run, Great Scott moves to San Diego Opera for a mid-May West Coast premiere. 

4) Christine Goerke (shown here as MOT’s Elektra) sings Strauss throughout the U.S. this fall. This month, the soprano joins the BSO, conducted by Andris Nelsons, at the Boston Symphony Music Hall for concerts of Elektra; Goerke, Nelsons and the BSO then bring the concert to Carnegie Hall for a single New York performance. In Nov., Goerke heads to Missouri, where she performs the Four Last Songs with the Saint Louis Symphony.

5) Robert Lepage’s production of Thomas Adès’s Tempest, seen in 2012 at the Festival Opéra de Québec and the Met, storms through Vienna this month. This Staatsoper run stars Christopher Maltman as Prospero, David Daniels as Trinculo, Stephanie Houtzeel as Miranda and Audrey Luna as Ariel.
