Noteworthy Date hdl 517 

A new coproduction (with LAO) of Orphée et Eurydice opens Lyric Opera of Chicago’s 2017–18 season in September; Harry Bicket conducts Dmitry Korchak and Andriana Chuchman in the title roles. Two other highlights of the season are David Pountney’s Die Walküre, the next installment in Lyric’s new Ring cycle, and Emmanuel Villaume conducting Kevin Newbury’s new Faust, with Erin Wall and Ana María Martínez sharing the role of Marguerite.

In November, SFO welcomes the world premiere of John Adams and Peter Sellars’s Girls of the Golden West as part of its 2017–18 season; the cast includes Julia Bullock and Davóne Tines. In his last season as music director, Nicola Luisotti will conduct the season-opener, Turandot, and the revival of La Traviata. A new Manon stars Nadine Sierra and Michael Fabiano, and Elektra receives its first SFO performances in twenty years. The summer season features Francesca Zambello’s Ring cycle.

Next season, Penny Woolcock’s production of Les Pêcheurs de Perles arrives at LA Opera; Javier Camarena makes his house debut as Nadir. Plácido Domingo sings Nabucco, with Liudmyla Monastyrska (in her house debut), Morris Robinson and Mario Chang. Music director James Conlon conducts the season-opening Carmen, as well as Candide and Orphée et Eurydice. Matthew Aucoin conducts Rigoletto.

The Met opens its 2017–18 season in September with David McVicar’s new production of Norma, starring Sondra Radvanovsky, Joyce DiDonato and Joseph Calleja. Met premieres are Massenet’s Cendrillon, with DiDonato and Stephanie Blythe, and Thomas Adès’s Exterminating Angel. Other new productions include Tosca, with Kristine Opolais, Vittorio Grigolo and Bryn Terfel, and Phelim McDermott’s staging of Così Fan Tutte. James Levine conducts Verdi’s Requiem. The Met also presents twenty revival productions.

Houston Grand Opera opens its sixty-third season with a new Traviata, starring Albina Shagimuratova. Anthony Roth Costanzo makes his role debut as Handel’s Giulio Cesare. Norma and Elektra, which haven’t been heard at HGO in more than twenty years, star Liudmyla Monastyrska and Christine Goerke, respectively. In April 2018, HGO becomes the first major American opera house to present West Side Story, directed by Francesca Zambellospacer
