Lyric Opera of Chicago welcomes Piotr Beczała for an intimate one-night recital with pianist Martin Katz (Feb. 25). After Chicago, the tenor heads east, singing Rodolfo in Verdi’s rarely-performed Luisa Miller, which makes its first return to the Met in more than ten years (Mar. 29–Apr. 21). Beczała is joined by Sonya Yoncheva and Plácido Domingo.

Christiane Karg  sings Eurydice to Juan Diego Flórez’s Orphée in La Scala’s first-ever performance of the Gluck opera in its French-language version (Feb. 24–Mar. 17). Following Milan, the German soprano sings Cavalli’s Calisto at Bayerische Staatsoper, before moving on to Pamina in a concert Zauberflöte at Baden-Baden, under conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

German tenor Andreas Schager sings the title role in Willy Decker’s production of Siegfried at Semperoper Dresden (Feb. 1) before moving to Berlin for Tristan in the premiere of Dmitri Tcherniakov’s new staging at Staatsoper unter den Linden (Feb. 11–Mar. 18). Sticking with Wagner, Schager later takes on Parsifal, first at Berlin’s Festtage and then at Opéra Bastille, in Richard Jones’s new production, with Peter Mattei.

Kirill Petrenko conductsNina Stemme as Brünnhilde in Bayerische Staatsoper’s Götterdämmerung (Feb. 8, 11, 27), directed by Andreas Kriegenburg. Later, the soprano joins three Parsifal productions, singing Kundry in Opernhaus Zürich’s Claus Guth revival, then at two festivals—Berlin’s Festtage at Staatsoper unter den Linden (with Schager) and Munich again, alongside Jonas Kaufmann and René Pape, in a new production by Pierre Audi.

Composer/librettist Douglas J. Cuomo’s Ashes & Snow has its world premiere at Pittsburgh Opera, Feb. 17–25. Cuomo, who previously wrote and composed the 2013 Doubt—based on the play and film of the same name—finds inspiration in Wilhelm Müller’s twenty-four-poem cycle, which was previously used as the text for Schubert’s Winterreise. Developed in partnership with American Opera Projects, Ashes & Snow will move to Brooklyn Academy of Music in late 2018. spacer
