Opera Idaho’s 45th season opens with a concert version of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! (August 18, 20 & 21,2017), followed by the first opera of the season L’elisir d’amore (October 6 & 8, 2017), a whimsical love story and one of Donizetti’s most-performed comedic operas, starring Cecilia Violetta López as Adina. Opening the holiday season will be Gian-Carlo Menotti’s tender story of a disabled boy and a miracle born out of kindness, Amahl & the Night Visitors (December 1 & 3, 2017).
2018 will see the return of the Winterreise Project, Schubert’s song cycle, in an amalgamation of voice & movement (January 19 & 21, 2018), followed by Giacomo Puccini’s masterpiece Madama Butterfly (February 16 & 18, 2018). The season will close with André Previn’s A Streetcar Named Desire, a “Made in the USA” opera based on the 1947 Pulitzer Prize-winning play by American playwright Tennessee Williams, starring up and coming soprano Julie Adams as Blanche.
