Javier Camarena makes his role debut as the Duke in Rigoletto this month, at Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu. He remains in Spain through May, singing La Fille du Régiment’s Tonio at both Ópera de las Palmas de Gran Canaria, in April, and at the Liceu, in May. In June, he travels to Munich’s Staatsoper to sing Cenerentola’s Ramiro.

⓶ Fort Worth Opera’s production of Before Night Falls, Jorge Martín’s opera based on the memoir of Cuban poet Reinaldo Arenas, arrives at Florida Grand Opera on March 18. Elliot Madore sings the poet who, after persecution under the Castro regime, immigrates to the U.S. and publishes his writing. Christopher Allen conducts.

⓷ Soprano Anja Harteros sings the doomed heroine of Andrea Chénier in France and Germany this month. From March 12–April 2 (and again in July), she is Maddalena at the Bayerische Staatsoper; on March 26, the Munich cast—which includes Jonas Kaufmann as Chénier and Luca Salsi as Carlo Gérard—travels to the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées for one performance of Giordano’s opera. Also in Munich, Harteros sings Elisabeth in Tannhäuser (May–June) and Leonora in La Forza del Destino (July).

⓸ A new production of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, by Kasper Holten, runs at Royal Opera, Covent Garden, through the thirty-first of the month. The staging marks Holten’s farewell production as the company’s director of opera. Antonio Pappano conducts; Bryn Terfel is Hans Sachs, and Rachel Willis-Sørensen is Eva.

⓹ Long Beach Opera hosts the long-delayed U.S. premiere of Philip Glass’s Perfect American on March 12, in a production by Kevin Newbury. The Perfect American, originally commissioned by New York City Opera in 2008 and given its world premiere in Madrid in 2013, provides a fictionalized account of the days leading up to Walt Disney’s death. Rudy Wurlitzer based his libretto on Peter Stephan Jungk’s fictionalized biography, Der König von Amerika. 

⓺ Opening on the twenty-fifth of the month is Mohammed Fairouz’s Dutch National Opera world premiere, The New Prince. The “prince” of the opera’s title takes its name from Machiavelli’s book The Prince; the opera explores the themes of power, oppression and world rule. Characters include Machiavelli (Nathan Gunn); Alexander Hamilton, Bill Clinton and Dick Cheney (Paulo Szot); and Bid Laden (George Abud). Lotte de Beer stages the production, which plays through March 31; Steven Sloane conducts.

Leonore, the first version of Beethoven’s Fidelio, plays on March 5 at Washington Concert Opera in its D.C. premiere. American soprano Marjorie Owens sings the title role. The cast also includes Simon O'Neill as Florestan, Eric Halfvarson as Rocco, Celena Shafer as Marzelline and Alan Held as Don Pizarro.

Carnegie Hall hosts two visiting orchestras for two operas in concert this month. Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Philadelphia Orchestra perform Bluebeard’s Castle, with Michelle DeYoung and John Relyea as Judith and the Duke, on March 7. (Before this, on March 3 and 4, the Philadelphians perform the same opera with the same cast in Pennsylvania’s Verizon Hall.) On March 31, Carnegie Hall hears the St. Louis Symphony, conducted by David Robertson, perform John Adams’s The Gospel According to the Other Mary; the cast includes Kelley O'Connor (Magdalene), Michaela Martens (Martha) and Jay Hunter Morris (Lazarus).

⓽ An American team of artists led by Grammy Award winning composer Frank London, and including librettist Elise Thoron, dramaturge Michael Posnick and Music-Theatre Group’s Diane Wondisford, is partnering with Cuba’s La Opera de la Calle for the inaugural performances of the Yiddish-Cuban opera, Hatuey: Memory of Fire. The work is adapted from the 1931 epic Yiddish poem by Ukrainian refugee Oscar Pinis (who later took the name of Ascher Penn) celebrating Cuba’s indigenous freedom fighter, Hatuey. The project will be presented from March 3-12, 2017 at Havana’s Teatro Arenal, under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture, before entering Opera de la Calle's repertoire; the work is also performed as part of the first Celebration of Cuban Jewish Culture (March 2-5, 2017). spacer
