SANTA FE (AP) — The Santa Fe Opera in northern New Mexico will feature six operas during its 2014 summer season, starting with a performance of Bizet’s “Carmen.”
Opera General Director Charles MacKay announced next season’s productions and casts on Wednesday.
The company will for the first time perform Beethoven’s “Fidelio,” Mozart’s “The Impresario” and “Dr. Sun Yat-Sen” by Huang Ruo, a Chinese-born composer whose opera is making its American premiere.
There also will be new productions of Donizetti’s “Don Pasquale,” which was performed by the Santa Fe Opera in 1983, and Stravinsky’s “Le Rossignol,” which was last done in 1973. The work by Stravinsky will be part of a double bill with Mozart’s comic opera.
The opera’s current season opens June 28 with Offenbach’s “The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein.”
