Dark Desires and Destiny

Snap-brim fedoras, trench coats and dimly lit speakeasies set the stage for legendary libertine Don Giovanni and his comic sidekick, Leporello. Seville has been replaced by the mean streets of the big city as dark shadows hide mistaken identities while intrigue and revenge abound. Mozart’s music is evocative and glorious as the Don romances and then discards his conquests. He finally meets his end at the cold hand of destiny in this beautifully reimagined masterpiece.

Sung in Italian with English titles.
Appropriate for children 13+

Love, Loss and Longing.

Although Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Dvorák’s Rusalka are based on the same Hans Christian Andersen fable, this isn’t your daughter’s Ariel. A hauntingly poetic libretto matched with a lush score, Rusalka tells the story of a lovely yet lovelorn mermaid who yearns to become human. The searing aria, “Song to the Moon,” is filled with longing as she prays for the prince to return her love. Her wish is granted, but she discovers that what we desir e can also destroy and redemption is seldom granted.

Sung in Czech with English titles.
Appropriate for children 11+

Passion, Pride and Potions.

Donizetti’s bel canto comedy is a lively, charming tale of a boy, a girl and a love potion. The setting has been reimagined as early 20th-century America in a style reminiscent of Kansas City painter Thomas Hart Benton. Upright and slightly naïve Nemorino is infatuated with beautiful and slightly fickle Adina, who in turn is in the sights of the calculating and slightly devious Sergeant Belcore. Enter snake-oil salesman Dr. Dulcamara, a cheap bottle of wine (or two) and you have a fun and whimsical romp. A beguiling tonic of passion and humor, The Elixir of Love features exhilarating duets as well as the wildly romantic aria, “Una furtiva lagrima,” which will leave you enchanted.

Sung in Italian with English titles.
Appropriate for children 7+

Maidens, Matadors and Madness.

Carmen, the passionate and devastating masterpiece by Georges Bizet, may be the opera even those unfamiliar with opera will recognize. Bizet’s score is seductive, alluring and perfectly matched to Carmen’s conquest of bullfighters, soldiers and smugglers.The fiery gypsy sings the signature “Habanera” as she sets her sights on local corporal Don José. He quickly falls under her spell, only to be cast aside and humiliated. The music follows his descent from soldier and lover to desperate murderer as he sends Carmen to her doom against the roar and cry of the bullring.

Sung in French with English titles.
Appropriate for children 13+
