GAETANO DONIZETTI

OCTOBER 7, 10, 12, 14, & 15

A toast to Tinseltown. This production of Donizetti’s bubbly farce presents the miserly aristocrat Don Pasquale as a silent movie star facing the end of his career in 1950s Hollywood. Locked in a battle of wits and wills with his lovesick nephew Ernesto and the crafty widow Norina, Pasquale must grapple with the new problems and possibilities of the modern technicolor world. It takes the clever scheming of the family doctor to teach the old curmudgeon a lesson—but not before a series of amusing catastrophes threaten to shatter his ego for good.

Sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage.

WOLFGANG AMADEUS
MOZART

NOVEMBER 11, 12, 14, 16, 17, 18, & 19

Love is a battlefield. Love is in the air in this new staging of Mozart’s timeless comedy of errors, widely considered the perfect opera. Mozart’s infectious score and Da Ponte’s witty dialogue bring humor, drama, and humanity to this story of class struggle. It should be the happiest day of their lives, but the wily servant Figaro and his charming fiancée Susanna must fend off the philandering, arrogant Count Almaviva before he ruins everything. On a day filled with chaos and confusion in which disguised identities are revealed and shenanigans ensue, will the young lovers finally make it to the altar?

GIUSEPPE VERDI

MARCH 17, 22, 24, 25, 27, 29, & 31

A fool’s revenge. Verdi’s time-honored tale of seduction and bitter revenge is boldly imagined in this new production. The disfigured jester Rigoletto must do everything in his power to protect his innocent daughter from the lecherous Duke of Mantua before she falls into his clutches. Brimming with rich melodies in verdant color and featuring the famous aria “La donna è mobile,” Rigoletto tragically unfurls as it races toward its devastating conclusion.

Sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage.

MAY 12, 15, 17, 19, & 20

Give in to temptation. A devout monk seeks to convert Thaïs, a ravishingly beautiful courtesan, but realizes too late that his pious obsession is rooted in lust, not religion. Minnesota Opera produces Massenet’s sensual and melodic creation for the first time with Minnesota-born soprano Kelly Kaduce (RusalkaToscaThe Shining) in the glamorous title role. Set in the deserts and oases of 4th-century Egypt, this searing drama explores the conflict between the passion of the flesh and the salvation of the soul.
