November 23 (12 noon) & 25 (7:15pm)
Il Trovatore (Verdi) -- Berlin Staatsoper Unter de Linden (2013)
Genre: OPERA (new production)
Running time: 2 hrs, 52 mins (sung in Italian)
Conductor: Daniel Barenboim
Director and Set Designer: Philipp Stolzl
Cast: Anna Netrebko, Placido Domingo, Gaston Rivero, Marina Prudenskaya, Adrian Sampetrean, Anna Lapkovskaja, Florian Hoffmann
Synopsis: Anna Netrebko, "in devastating form" (The Times), draws a compelling and immediate portrait of Leonora from beginning to end. Placido Domingo stars for the first time as Conte di Luna, radiating "his magical stage presence that ennobles every evening of opera" (Die Welt). Il Trovatore features the old gypsy Azucena, whose love for her adoptive son is complicated by the fact that, years ago, she accidentally murdered her biological son in his stead. As in Rigoletto, vengeance is the force that propels the melodramatic plot -- complete with star-crossed lovers and mixed-up infants -- to its tragic end.

December 14 (12 noon) & 16 (7:15pm)
La Cenerentola (Rossini) -- Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona (2007)
Genre: OPERA (new production)
Running time: 2 hrs, 45 mins (sung in Italian)
Conductor: Patrick Summers
Director: Joan Font
Choreography: Xevi Dorca
Designer and Costumes: Joan Guillen
Cast: Joyce DiDonato, Juan Diego Florez, Itxaro Mentxaka, Cristina Obregon, Bruno de Simone, David Menendez, Simon Orfila
Synopsis: Catch Joyce DiDonato and Juan Diego Florez in what may just be definitive performances in Rossini's enchanting rags-to-riches rendition (James Sohre, Opera Today). This performance from Barcelona's Gran Teatre del Liceu captures all the vocal sparks and dazzle generated by these two phenomenal singers. With his airy, effortless high notes and perfect command of rapid-fire Rossinian parlando, the charismatic Florez once again proves that he was born to sing Rossini.

December 21 (12 noon) & 23 (7:15pm)
The Nutcracker (Tchiakovsky) -- Vienna State Ballet (2012)
Genre: BALLET (new production)
Running time: 2 hours
Conductor: Paul Connelly
Choreography: Rudolf Nureyev
Orchestra: Orchestra of the Wiener Staatsoper
Video Director: Michael Beyer
Cast: Liudmila Konovalova, Vladimir Shishov, Emilia Baranowicz, Davide Dato, Franziska Wallner-Hollinek, Gabor Oberegger, Eva Polacek, Christoph Wenzel, Attila Bako, Martin Winter, Trevor Hayden, Alena Klochkova, Prisca Zeisel
Synopsis: A magician with secrets, an enchanted gift, a battle with the Mouse King, a guiding angel and a visit through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets: it must be the seasonal favorite, The Nutcracker. This classic production draws on all the imagination and fantasy of E.T.A. Hoffmann's story of Christmas Eve, when young Clara creeps downstairs for one of her presents, but finds herself instead at the start of a night of magical adventures. Tchaikovsky's music is some of the most instantly memorable of all ballet. This is classical ballet at its most approachable and visually entrancing, with something for everyone to enjoy, from the youngest in the family to the oldest.

January 18 (12 noon) & 20 (7:15pm)
Barber of Seville (Rossini) -- Opera de Paris (2014)
Genre: OPERA (new production)
Running time: 3 hrs, 4 mins (sung in Italian)
Cast: Rene Barberam, Karine Deshayes, Dalibor Jenis and Carlo Lepore
Synopsis: Undoubtedly the most famous opera buffa in the history of music and an eternal source of delight, Rossini's remarkable opera was composed in only a few weeks. Although the premiere, performed on February 10, 1816 in Rome was a resounding flop, the opera was quickly revived on February 22, when "The Barber" received rapturous applause. And indeed, how could Rossini have escaped this initial resistance? He pitted the old world (through Bartolo and his authoritarianism) against the new world; old opera against modern opera. With its incredible verve and youthful cheer, this was the work that built Rossini's brilliant international reputation. Italian stage director Damiano Michieletto makes his Paris Opera debut with this lively production of Rossini's masterpiece.

February 22 (12 noon) & 24 (7:15pm)
La Forza del Destino (Verdi) -- National Theater of Munich (2014)
Genre: OPERA (new production)
Running time: 3 hrs, 30 mins (sung in Italian)
Conductor: Asher Fisch
Director: Martin Kusej
Cast: Jonas Kaufmann, Anja Harteros, Ludovic Tezier, Vitalij Kowaljow, Nadia Krasteva, Renato Girolami
Synopsis: La Forza del Destino -- what is the meaning of the destiny that Verdi uses so forcefully? Who forces Leonora, and Alvaro as the murderer of her father, to enter the hermitage of a monastery -- and confronts them there, in a mighty showdown, with the brother who is full of hatred and cannot forgive? Is it a declaration of war against God's promise of redemption? The heavenly cantilena of a solo violin rises at the end of the opera -- in the face of the death of the hero's lover and brother. Those who withdraw into the consoling twilight of a divine peace are only trying to deny one thing: the force of destiny.

March 15 (12 noon) & 17 (7:15pm)
Tosca (Puccini) -- Opera de Paris (2014)
Genre: OPERA (new production)
Running time: 2 hrs, 42 mins (sung in Italian)
Conductor: Daniel Oren
Director: Pierre Audi
Cast: Martina Serafin, Marcelo Alvarez, Ludovic Tezier
Synopsis: A singer in love, passionate, jealous and impulsive; a romantic painter, an idealist and a defender of liberty; a police chief with a lust for flesh, power and blood, ready to do anything to achieve his ends. Puccini artfully combines the ingredients of a melodrama written for Sarah Bernhardt and comes up with what might be called the opera of operas, a spectacle at once primitive and decadent. In a mythical yet real Rome, from the shadows of the church of Sant' Andrea della Valle to the terrace of Castello Sant' Angelo, passions collide and tear all apart, mingling the erotic with the sacred, love with possession, theatre with life. Nothing is what it seems in Tosca: beautiful women who come to pray are conspirators, defeats are victories and mock executions are real. A spectacular work which captures the essence of opera as few others do. Pierre Audi directs a new production of this violent and passionate work for the Paris Opera.
