    Boston Lyric Opera: Ariadne Auf Naxos

    An unseen producer makes changes to an opera just before the curtain rises. That's how the clowns get onstage. The composer? Backstage, tearing his hair out. Strauss weaves voices and orchestra beautifully in his half farce, half opera seria. Music by Richard Strauss. North American premiere of critically acclaimed Welsh National Opera production! Sung in German with projected English translation.

      "A delightful new production...a dynamic set of rising singers including Marjorie Owens in the title role. This young American soprano...showed off an impressively large, orchestra-piercing voice, full of dark Wagnerian colorings and Weltschmerz. Edyta Kulczak was a wonderfully impassioned Composer, singing with irruptions of ardent tone. Rachele Gilmore was a winning Zerbinetta, with all the coquettish charm this role demands and also the secure technique and theatrical flair to make the role’s big coloratura number feel organically connected to her character rather than like a stretch of disconnected virtuoso preening. And Brandon Jovanovich showed off a robust, clear, shapely and resonant tenor in the high-lying role of Bacchus. The numerous smaller roles were all capably sung, and sometimes much more than that."
