Korean–American soprano Kathleen Kim sings La Fée in Laurent Pelly’s Cendrillon at the Met, April 12–May 11. Kim joins Joyce DiDonato, in the title role, Alice Coote as Le Prince Charmant and Stephanie Blythe as Madame de la Haltière. After New York, Kim heads to Opera Theatre of Saint Louis for the full-length world premiere of Huang Ruo and David Henry Hwang’s American Soldier, in which she sings the role of Josephine Young.

Fiona Shaw’s production of Medea travels to Opera Omaha’s new One Festival (‘O’ for Omaha, ‘NE’ for Nebraska), which was launched to celebrate the company’s 60th-anniversary season. Jane Glover conducts the two performances, presented on April 20 and 22. Other festival highlights include composer Missy Mazzoli’s Proving Up and director R. B. Schlather’s Ariodante staging.

John Chest  sings Dr. Falke in Rolando Villazón’s staging of Die Fledermaus at Deutsche Oper Berlin, April 28–June 8. There is little downtime for the American baritone, who next travels to the Glyndebourne Festival for Stefan Herheim’s new production of Pelléas et Mélisande, June 30–August 9. Christina Gansch is Mélisande to Chest’s Pelléas, with pacing by festival music director Robin Ticciati.

Italian soprano Rosa Feola sings Norina in Davide Livermore’s new production of Don Pasquale at La Scala (Apr. 3–May 4); Riccardo Chailly conducts. After Milan, Feola heads to Munich, first for Gilda in Bayerische Staatsoper’s Rigoletto (Jun. 17–24), then Lauretta in the festival’s Gianni Schicchi—presented as part of Il Trittico (Jul. 14–16). Kirill Petrenko conducts the Puccini, with direction from Lotte de Beer.

Having made company debuts earlier this season at Liceu Barcelona, Opera Omaha and Arizona Opera, American tenor Taylor Stayton makes another company debut, this time at Washington National Opera, in Peter Kazaras’s Barbiere di Siviglia staging (Apr. 28–May 19). Later, Stayton closes his season with Alfred in Des Moines Metro Opera’s Fledermaus, directed by David Gately. spacer
