New San Francisco Opera Season Announced

Lucia di Lammermoor

Lucia di Lammermoor

Now this is one to get genuinely excited about. Some of my favorite highlights for this final season under general director David Gockley:

–U.S. debut of director Calixto Bieito with his post-Franco-set Carmen

–double bill of Gordon Getty’s Usher House and Claude Debussy’s La Chute de la Maison Usher

–the David McVicar production of Meistersinger

–Jiří Bělohlávek conducting Janáček’s Jenůfa

–new Lucia di Lammermoor production to be directed by Michael Cavanagh

–Stephanie Blythe and Gerald Finley in Sweeney Todd

–return of Verdi’s seldom-seen Luisa Miller

The full complete release is here (pdf).
