When Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo starred opposite each other in Manon at the Met in 2015, the New York Times said, “the temperature rises nearly to boiling every time Damrau and Grigolo are on stage together.” Now they’re back as opera’s classic lovers, in Gounod’s lush Shakespeare adaptation. Bartlett Sher’s new production has already won acclaim for its vivid 18thcentury milieu and stunning costumes during runs at Salzburg and La Scala. Gianandrea Noseda conducts the sumptuous score.

FLIGHT @ The Orpheum Theater

Friday, April 21, 2017, 7:30 p.m.

Flight

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN SECRET DESIRES ARE UNLEASHED?

English composer Jonathan Dove’s opera tells the story of a group of disparate travelers who meet at an airport with shared departure plans but hidden personal desires. Their flights are canceled suddenly with the arrival of a violent electrical storm. Trapped in the airport overnight as the storm rages, facades are dropped and anxiety levels rise. The lives of these one-time strangers turbulently collide as they shed inhibitions to confront personal desires, hopes, fear and each other...all with unexpected consequences.

Director James Darrah (Agrippina, 2014, A Flowering Tree, 2015, and Semele, 2016) and conductor Christopher Rountree (A Flowering Tree) return to bring a new production of this revolutionary opera to the stage. Dove’s thrilling score and dramatist April de Angelis’ deliciously funny, poetic libretto make this contemporary opera a truly groundbreaking work of theatre.

The dream cast of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and Elīna Garanča as Octavian star in Strauss’s grandest opera. In his new production, Robert Carsen places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Sebastian Weigle conducts the sparklingly perfect score.
