Milan’s Teatro alla Scala will aim to present one Baroque title per season, beginning this Jan. with Handel’s oratorio Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno. Personifications of Pleasure, Beauty, Deceit and Time come to life in Jürgen Flimm’s staging, which has played previously in Zurich and Berlin. Diego Fasolis conducts.

On Jan. 24, Anna Caterina Antonacci makes her Opéra Royal de Wallonie debut in the first of five performances (through Feb. 5) of a double bill of Wolf-Ferrari’s Segreto di Susanna and Poulenc’s Voix Humaine. Antonacci has appeared in Ludovic Lagarde’s production twice before, in Paris and Luxembourg, both in 2013, as part of a three-way coproduction. Antonacci also sang Elle and Susanna under James Darrah’s direction last March at Opera San Antonio.

Bryan Hymel spends the first half of the new year delving into classic tenor roles of the Italian repertoire. This month, and again in April and May, he returns to Franco Zeffirelli’s Met production of La Bohème. In March and June, he is Deutsche Oper Berlin’s Duke of Mantua. French audiences can hear him in Paris in May and June, as Alfredo to Sonya Yoncheva’s Violetta, and in Orange in July, when he sings Pinkerton.

In Oct., Sony Classical announced an exclusive, long-term recording agreement with Pretty Yende, the South African soprano who sings Pamina this month in a new production of Die Zauberflöte at the Grand Théâtre de Genève. Yende’s debut Sony album is scheduled for a fall 2016 release. 

The Curtis Institute of Music Opera Theatre stages a world premiere at the end of the month. Empty the House tells the story of a mother and daughter who spend a final weekend in a house filled with melancholic memories. The opera features a libretto by Mark Campbell and music by Rene Orth. The composer is pictured at the opera’s workshop last year with Mikael Eliasen, left, the artistic director of Curtis Opera Theatre. spacer
