Noteworthy Now 1115 

❶  Washington National Opera relives a century of American history from Nov. 14–22 with Appomattox. The opera, which had its premiere in 2007, is presented in a revised version featuring an all-new second act. Tom Fox sings the roles of Abraham Lincoln and Lyndon B. Johnson, and Soloman Howard appears as Frederick Douglass and Martin Luther King, Jr. 

❷   Susan Graham makes her role debut as Countess Geschwitz in William Kentridge’s production of Lulu, which runs from Nov. 5–Dec. 3 at the Met. The mezzo will remain in New York through Jan. to sing Orlofsky in Die Fledermaus at the Met as well as a New Year’s Eve concert of French music with the New York Philharmonic.

❸  Lyric Opera of Chicago mounts Susan Stroman’s production of The Merry Widow, which bowed in 2014 at a New Year’s Eve gala at the Met. Renée Fleming, who sang Hanna Glawari in the initial Met performances, reprises the role in the Civic Opera House beginning on Nov. 14.

❹  Baritone Matthew Worth is focusing on twenty-first-century music. Pictured here singing Lieutenant Audebert in Kevin Puts’s Silent Night at Wexford, he sings a different war story this month in David T. Little’s Soldier Songs at Atlanta Opera. In March, he heads to Opera Birmingham for Ricky Ian Gordon’s Green Sneakers, and in May, he takes on the titular president in the world premiere of another Little work, JFK, in Fort Worth. 

❺  Boston Lyric Opera has chosen The Cyclorama, the domed venue housed in the Boston Center for the Arts, as the performance location of Philip Glass’s In the Penal Colony, opening Nov. 11. The offsite opera is part of BLO’s Opera Annex initiative, which strives to stage chamber operas in unique, intimate settings.
