⓵ A new production of Virgil Thomson’s rarely performed Mother of Us All (Nov. 11–19) honors the centennial of New York State’s signing into law a woman’s right to vote. Directed by R. B. Schlather, mezzo-soprano Michaela Martens is women’s suffrage leader Susan B. Anthony, giving voice to Gertrude Stein’s libretto at the historic and newly restored Hudson Opera House.

Soprano Ying Fang sings Morgana to Angela Meade’s Alcina in a new production of Handel’s opera by Washington National Opera, Nov. 4–19. Elizabeth DeShong and Daniela Mack join as Ruggiero and Bradamante, respectively; Anne Bogart directs. Following WNO, Fang goes west, singing Adina in Vancouver Opera’s Elisir d’Amore (Jan. 21–27). 

Opéra National de Paris music director Philippe Jordan conducts final performances of Don Carlos at the Bastille this month before giving shape to Berlioz’s Benvenuto Cellini (March 20–Apr. 14) and Wagner’s Parsifal (Apr. 27–May 23). In the fall of 2020, the Swiss conductor, who also serves as music director of the Vienna Symphony, takes on a larger role in the city, succeeding former Vienna State Opera music director Franz Welser-Möst, who unexpectedly resigned in 2014. 

After her September–October run as Adalgisa in the Met’s Norma, Joyce DiDonato sings the title role in Royal Opera House’s Semiramide, directed by David Alden (Nov. 19–Dec. 16). Ildebrando D’Arcangelo, Daniela Barcellona and Lawrence Brownlee also star. In January, the mezzo arrives in Madrid, singing Sister Helen Prejean in Teatro Real’s Dead Man Walking before dusting off her glass slippers for Cendrillon, in Laurent Pelly’s production at the Met. 

Grammy Award-winning mezzo Sasha Cooke is the troubled heroine in Nico Muhly’s Marnie, which receives its world premiere at English National Opera this month in a coproduction with the Met. Bass-baritone Daniel Okulitch sings Mark Rutland to Cooke’s title role, with Tony Award-winning Michael Mayer, in his U.K. opera debut, directing the psychological thriller based on Winston Graham’s novel. spacer
