On November 11 we’ll take you to the 18th century with one of the most dramatic and best-loved works in the bell canto repertoire, Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, with the extraordinary soprano Anna Christy, star of the Metropolitan Opera and Royal Opera House.

In January 2018 we’ll travel to ancient Jerusalem with Richard Strauss’s Salome starring soprano Melody Moore, who has stunned audiences with performances at New York City Opera and Glimmerglass Festival.

In March 2018 we move from a Biblical setting to a mythological one with Christoph Willibald Gluck’s magnificent retelling of the Orpheus legend, Orfeo ed Euridice. Starring in one of the greatest vocal masterpieces is countertenor Anthony Roth Constanzo, who won the first prize in Placido Domingo’s 2012 Operalia Competition.

We then conclude the 77th season with our “Made for Miami” contemporary work that forges a strong connection with Miami’s rich and diverse communities, Daniel Catán’s Florencia en el Amazonas. Starring in one of the most widely successful opera of the past two decades will be soprano Ana María Martínez, acclaimed for her performances at the Metropolitan Opera and San Francisco Opera.
