Madame Butterfly
By Giacomo Puccini
Discovery Theater 7, 8, 9 November 2014

Madame Butterfly is that one opera that you don’t see, but are witness to a love story that ends in heartbreaking tragedy. Madame Butterfly will leave you with tears in your eyes; clinging to your loved one.

This new production features the return of tenor Kirk Dougherty as Lt. B.F. Pinkerton, last seen as Arturo in Lucia di Lammermoor. Jonathan Beyer is also returning from last season's Lucia to essay the role of Sharpless. Russian soprano Inna Dukach makes her AO debut as Cio-Cio San and Marsha Ackerman make her AO debut in the role of Suzuki.

The Impresario
By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Mozart & Salieri
By Nicolai Remsky-Korsakov
Grant Hall 20, 21, 22, 27, 28 February & 1 March 2015
(Dates are Tentative)

They are intertwined in death as they were in life. AO presents an evening of one of the greatest mysteries in history. Did Salieri really poison Mozart and cause his death? This doublebill evening of opera begins with The Impresario, a comic masterpiece that has Mozart using his wits to coax two rival sopranos to work together on a new opera.

The Impresario is followed by the Alaskan premiere of Mozart & Salieri by Nicolai Remsky-Korsakov. This opera is inspired by the play of the same name by Aleksandr Pushkin. Explore the mind of Salieri as he struggles to come to terms with his diminished stature next to Mozart. The opera culminates in a fateful dinner between to two composers and the infamous poisoning. This evening will leave you speechless!

The Magic Flute
By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Discovery Theater 10, 11, 12 April 2015

Last seen in Anchorage at the Fourth Avenue Theatre in 1995, this all-new production of Mozart’s final opera is sure to be a family favorite. Spend the evening with the bird-brained Papageno as he tries to help Tamino rescue the princess Pamina while hoping for a little Papagena of his own. Filled with magic, dragons, and special effects, The Magic Flute will make you feel like a kid again.
