Opera in Concert Announces it’s 5th Anniversary Season

General Director Heather Ross introduced the new 2018-19 season of Opera in Concert, which has become one of Dallas’ premier opera venues, “We’re so excited about everything that’s new this year; an expanded season with three concert dates, a discounted season ticket price, artist debuts and fascinating repertoire! We are proud to have reached our fifth season, and we thank our many patrons and donors in the DFW area!”

New for this season are:

November 30, 2018, Sammons Center

“A Night in Berlin” featuring complete performances in English of Mahagonny Songspiel by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill and The Tide by Boris Blacher. Mahagonny Songspiel caused a riot when it premiered in 1927, and The Tide is a tense psychological drama about four people stranded on a wrecked ship. Our cast features Stephanie Smittle, Rachel Catlett, Gabrielle Gilliam, Steven Brennfleck, Doug Brunker, Joshua Hughes, John Kuether and Edward Crafts, with Stephen Dubberly as music director. Tickets are $20 ($10 for students) at operainconcert.org

February 10, 2019, Private Venue

            “Love in Bloom” , our gala Valentine’s celebration featuring beloved opera arias from the great romances of the operatic stage. Our guests will be treated to champagne and Valentine’s treats in a gorgeous private home! Tickets are $75 at operainconcert.org.

May 2, 2019, Latino Cultural Center

El Barbero de Sevilla by Manuel Nieto and Gerónimo Giménez  - a zarzuela about singers in a performance of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, with enough quotations from popular operas to make an Opera Quiz! This delightful piece will be given a production with the singing mostly in Spanish and the spoken dialogues mostly in English, so everyone can enjoy the fun! Our stellar bilingual cast includes zarzuela specialist Judith Rodriguez, Josefina Maldonado, and Carlos Romero. Stephen Dubberly will be the music director and translator.

Tickets are $20 ($10 student) at operainconcert.org

Ms. Ross reminded patrons that all three concerts can be attended at a discount by purchasing a season ticket for $90 before November 29, 2018 at operainconcert.org.
