Rolex has announced that Philip Glass is one of the seven artists who will take on a mentoring role in the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative, which pairs industry professionals with young, rising talent. Glass—whose Akhnaten plays in a new production this month at ENO—will spend up to six weeks this year working with his protégé on music and composition.

San Francisco Opera inaugurates the first season of the new SF Opera Lab from Mar. 11–13 with William Kentridge’s staging of Winterreise. The production, whichappeared in 2014 in Aix and at Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival, includes twenty-four short films and artwork by the South African director. Matthias Goerne, baritone, and Markus Hinterhäuser, pianist, will perform the Schubert cycle.

This month, Théâtre du Châtelet opens Passion, the fifth Sondheim undertaking at the Parisian theater. Natalie Dessay, who ventured into musical theater last year with the Châtelet production of Les Parapluies de Cherbourg, sings Fosca. 

Soprano Audrey Luna is busy singing world premieres this spring and summer. From Mar. 12–Apr. 2, she sings the role of the Wife in Elysium, with music by Rolf Wallin, at Den Norske Opera; David Pountney directs. In July and Aug., Luna heads to the Salzburg Festival for Thomas Adès’s Exterminating Angel.

On Mar. 29, Tony Award-winning director Bartlett Sher will be an honoree at the twenty-ninth annual Erwin Piscator Award ceremony in New York. Sher’s opera productions can be seen throughout the U.S. this month, from the Met (L’Elisir d’Amore) to Lyric Opera of Chicago (Roméo et Juliette). spacer
