Following her 2016 success with Breaking the Waves, composerMissy Mazzoli, partnered again with librettist Royce Vavrek, is back with Proving Up, a one-hour opera that has its premiere run at Washington National Opera, Jan. 19–21, as part of the American Opera Initiative Festival. Based on a coming-of-age short story by Karen Russell, the production transports audiences to the American West, in the wake of the 1862 Homestead Act. 

Countertenor Philippe Jaroussky (Spirit, Angel) and bass-baritone Davóne Tines (Priest, Fisherman) appear in Only the Sound Remainsat the Palais Garnier (Jan. 23–Feb. 7) in the French premiere of Saariaho’s opera. Peter Sellars returns to direct his own production, which had its world premiere in 2016 at Dutch National Opera. Later, Jaroussky has more French engagements, as Ruggiero in Théâtre des Champs-Elysées’s Alcina, then two Gluck Orfeos: first at Champs-Elysées, then at Versailles.

Soprano Lisette Oropesa sings Gretel in the Met’s Hansel and Gretel (Dec. 18–Jan. 6) before heading to Bayerische Staatsoper for Konstanze in Die Entführung aus dem Serail (Jan. 12–17). In March, Oropesa returns to the U.S., singing Eurydice to Maxim Mironov’s Orpheus in L.A. Opera presentations of John Neumeier’s new production of the Gluck opera. The production had its Lyric Opera of Chicago premiere in September.

After pacing final performances of Olivier Py’s new production of Le Prophèteat Deutsche Oper Berlin (Jan. 4 and 7), Italian conductor Enrique Mazzola heads to Chicago for I Puritani with Albina Shagimuratova (Elvira) and Lawrence Brownlee (Arturo), Feb. 4–28. In April, Mazzola returns to Europe for a new production of Maria Stuarda at Opernhaus Zürich, where Diana Damrau sings the doomed Queen of Scots.

At London’s Victoria & Albert Museum,Opera: Passion, Power and Politics,which opened Sept. 30 and runs through Feb. 25, explores the history of opera, from its origins in late-Renaissance Italy to the present day. Copresented with the Royal Opera House, the exhibition offers everything from costumes, accessories and set designs to engravings, photographs, sheet music and more, giving an intimate look at the 400-year-old art form. spacer
