Bizet’s Les Pêcheurs de Perles
Bizet’s gorgeous opera of lust and longing set in the Far East returns to the Met stage for the first time in 100 years. Soprano Diana Damrau stars as Leïla, the beautiful Hindu priestess pursued by rival pearl divers competing for her hand. Her suitors are tenor Matthew Polenzani and baritone Mariusz Kwiecien, who sing the lilting duet Au Fond Du Temple Saint, which opera fans know and adore. Director Penny Woolcock explores the timeless themes of pure love, betrayal and vengeance in a production that vividly creates an undersea world on the stage of the Met. Conductor Gianandrea Noseda brings his romantic flair to the lush score from the composer of Carmen. Estimated run time 174 mins. Encore screening: January 20 at 6:30 pm.
Saturday, January 30, 12:55 pm
Puccini’s Turandot
Christine Goerke, Lise Lindstrom and Nina Stemme, three of opera’s greatest dramatic sopranos, take turns in the title role of the proud princess of ancient China, whose riddles doom every suitor who seeks her hand. Tenors Marcelo Álvarez and Marco Berti are Calàf, the brave prince who sings Nessun Dorma and wins her love. Franco Zeffirelli’s golden production is conducted by Paolo Carignani. Estimated run time 215 mins. Encore screening: February 3 at 6:30 pm.
Saturday, March 5, 12:55 pm
Manon Lescaut
The Met stage ignites when soprano Kristine Opolais and tenor Jonas Kaufmann join forces in Puccini’s obsessive love story. Opolais sings the title role of the country girl who transforms herself into a Parisian temptress, while Kaufmann is the dashing student who desperately woos her. Director Richard Eyre places the action in occupied France in a film noir setting. “Desperate passion” is the phrase Puccini himself used to describe the opera that confirmed his position as the preeminent Italian opera composer of his day. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads the stirring score. Estimated run time 213 mins. Encore screening: March 9 at 6:30 pm.
Saturday, April 2, 12:55 pm

Roberto Devereux
Soprano Sondra Radvanovsky takes on the extraordinary challenge of singing all three of Donizetti’s Tudor queens in the course of a single season, a rare feat made famous by Beverly Sills – and not attempted on a New York stage since. In this climactic opera of the trilogy, she plays Queen Elizabeth I, forced to sign the death warrant of the nobleman she loves, Roberto Devereux. Tenor Matthew Polenzani is Devereux, and mezzo-soprano Elina Garanca and baritone Mariusz Kwiecien complete the principal quartet in the bel canto masterpiece, conducted by Donizetti specialist Maurizio Benini. As with the earlier Anna Bolena and Maria Stuarda, the production is by Sir David McVicar, who with this staging completes an enormously ambitious directorial accomplishment. Estimated run time 191 mins. Encore screening: April 20 at 6:30 pm.
Saturday, April 30, 12:55 pm
Elektra
The genius director Patrice Chéreau (From The House Of The Dead) didn’t live to see his great Elektra production, previously presented in Aix and Milan, make it to the stage of the Met. But his overpowering vision lives on with soprano Nina Stemme – unmatched today in the heroic female roles of Strauss and Wagner – who portrays Elektra’s primal quest for vengeance for the murder of her father, Agamemnon. Legendary mezzo-soprano Waltraud Meier is chilling as Elektra’s fearsome mother, Klytämnestra. Soprano Adrianne Pieczonka and bass-baritone Eric Owens are Elektra’s troubled siblings. Chéreau’s musical collaborator Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts Strauss’s mighty take on Greek myth. Estimated run time 130 mins. Encore screening: May 4 at 6:30 pm.

Polish Baltic Philharmonic Orchestra
Ernst van Tiel, Artistic Director and Conductor Founded in 1945 on the heels of postwar Polish independence, The Polish Baltic Philharmonic is the largest music institution in northern Poland.

His activities abroad include guest conductorships among others at the orchestra of the Teatro Communale in Bologna, where he introduced works of contemporary Dutch composers, the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra with a program based on the music of Duke Ellington, the Royal Flemish Philharmonic, the National Orchestra of Belgium and several orchestras in Germany and China.

Opera Roanoke: La Traviata
Violetta Valery is the quintessential operatic heroine, and a benchmark role for the soprano voice. From covering acclaimed diva Renée Fleming at Houston Grand Opera, to opera companies across the USA and Europe, Amy Cofield Williamson (Carmen, ’12; Julius Caesar, ’14) has made Verdi’s La Traviata her signature role. With a cast including star baritone Levi Hernandez (Cinderella, ’15), Opera Roanoke’s 40th Anniversary Season closes in a crescendo of passion with one of the greatest dramatic masterpieces in the operatic repertoire. Tickets: $49 - $184. 540-345-2550 http://www.jeffcenter.org/sweeney-todd Shaftman Performance Hall, Jefferson Center, 541 Luck Avenue, SW, Roanoke, VA 24016

Virginia Opera: The Flying Dutchman
The season concludes with a stunning production directed by Washington National Opera’s Artistic Director, Francesca Zambello, and made famous at Glimmerglass Festival. Lauded by the Chicago Sun-Times for his “rich, dark tone and beautiful legato,” bass-baritone Wayne Tigges conquers the role of the Dutchman. Recently seen on Virginia Opera stages singing the title role in Ariadne auf Naxos (2014), experience Christina Pier’s monumental debut in the Wagnerian repertoire, as she unleashes her “big, gleaming soprano” in the role of Senta. Conductor - Adam Turner, Director - Sara Widzer. Seafaring stories of sailors and his own disastrous sea journey inspired Wagner to compose his masterful opera The Flying Dutchman in a very dramatic style. The irrevocable, redemptive power of love - set to a mesmerizing score - uses the supernatural and haunting, rocky coast of Norway to set the stage for an epic, spellbinding voyage. Will the lovers make the ultimate sacrifice? Come aboard and find out! Sung in German with English Supertitles. *Single ticket sales begin February 29.

Esterhazy Trio
Ewell Concert Series. The Esterhazy Trio, based in Vienna, Austria, provides an authentic eighteenth-century musical experience while at the same time demonstrating the latest trends in historical performance. The Trio transports audiences into that most rarified of cultural circles, the private music-making of the Hungarian baryton virtuoso Prince Nicolaus I. Esterhazy and the virtuoso instrumentalists in his employ. The baryton, a bowed string instrument that was in use in Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries, featured in compositions by Haydn and Tomasini. Michael Brussing and his period-instrument colleagues are the foremost interpreters of this important and little-heard repertoire. Having established their reputation over a period of more than twenty years in Europe and Japan, the Esterhazy Trio is making its first tour of the United States in April 2016. Admission: Free.

Shakespeare's The Tempest
No reading of The Tempest can do it justice. Shakespeare's tale of Prospero's island is inherently theatrical, unfolding in a series of spectacles, and was created by Shakespeare as a multi-sensory theater experience of sight and sound. The richness of The Tempest as theater is matched by the extraordinary thematic complexity of its text, which plays on the polarities of reality and illusion, nature and civilization, revenge and forgiveness. This fully staged new theatrical production features incidental music by Sibelius that is considered by many to be one of his greatest achievements. Virginia Stage Company, Virginia Symphony Orchestra, Virginia Symphony Chorus, JoAnn Falletta, conducto; Patrick Mullins, stage director. Tickets: $15 - $55. Phone 757-282-2822 or visit www.vafest.org Chrysler Hall, 215 St. Paul's Blvd., Norfolk

Mildred McDaniel Concert Series. The Tidewater Concert Band has provided musical entertainment for Hampton Roads, Virginia since 1971. The band is made up of volunteers of all ages and was organized in Portsmouth, Virginia in February 1971 by the late David Mitchell, a longtime band director at Churchland High School.

The band did a centerpiece performance at Yorktown's Bicentennial Celebration in 1976. The band has gone through many phases and musicians throughout its long history, but continues today to provide quality music to the community. The concert – weather permitting – is outside on the back lawn of Reformation along with ice cream and irresistible toppings. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy an afternoon of rousing patriotic music and other popular selections to honor Armed Forces Day. The concert is free and open to the public.
