The Paris run stars Aleksandrs Antonenko and Anita Rachvelishvili; music director Philippe Jordan conducts Saint-Saëns’s grand opera, as well as four other operas, by Offenbach, Wagner, Mozart and Berlioz, at the Paris Opéra this season.

On Oct. 20, Barrie Kosky—artistic director of Komische Oper Berlin, where no fewer than eight of his productions play this season—makes his Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, debut with a new production of The Nose, with Martin Winkler as Kovalev. Shostakovich’s satire will be performed in a new English translation by David Pountney.

Kevin Newbury’s production of Norma—a coproduction with San Francisco Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago and Gran Teatre del Liceu—opens Canadian Opera Company’s 2016–17 season on Oct. 6.

He also returns to the Met in the spring as Jacquino in Fidelio and sings Lurcanio in a concert tour of Ariodante, conducted by Harry Bicket, that travels to Carnegie Hall, Theater an der Wien and Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, among others.
