Noteworthy & Now

by Eloise Giegerich

Noteworthy Now hdl 1017

 Luca Pisaroni heads to the Opéra Bastille this month to sing Golaud in Opéra National de Paris’s Pelléas et Mélisande. After Paris, the bass-baritone will travel to Vienna, where he is Leporello in the Staatsoper’s Don Giovanni and later Mustafà in its L’Italiana in Algeri. In December, Pisaroni arrives stateside at the Met for Count Almaviva, and on Dec. 7, he gives a special performance at the Metropolitan Opera Guild luncheon, which this year honors soprano Renée Fleming.

Matthew Aucoin’s Walt Whitman-inspired chamber opera, Crossing, has its New York premiere run at BAM’s 2017 New Wave Festival from October 3–8. Tony Award-winning Diane Paulus directs, with Boston-based chamber orchestra A Far Cry bringing the composer/conductor’s score to life. The performances are produced by American Repertory Theater at Harvard University, which commissioned the piece, in association with Music-Theatre Group. 

Soprano Latonia Moore makes her English National Opera debut singing the title role in Aida (Sept. 28–Oct. 27) in a new production by Olivier Award-winning director Phelim McDermott. Moore made her Met debut as the tormented princess in 2012, stepping in with less than a day’s notice when Violeta Urmana fell ill.

Under James Robinson’s direction, Houston Grand Opera transports the machinations of ancient Egypt to the glamour and glitz of golden-age Hollywood in its revival production of Giulio Cesare (Oct. 27–Nov. 10). Soprano Heidi Stober sings Cleopatra to Anthony Roth Costanzo’s Caesar, with Stephanie Blythe as Cornelia and David Daniels as Ptolemy. 

American tenor Russell Thomas makes his role debut as Verdi’s Otello on Oct. 7 and 10 at the Atlanta Symphony. The performances, conducted by music director Robert Spano, mark a return for Thomas, who was the Symphony’s first artist-in-residence during its 2014–15 season. After Atlanta, the tenor makes his way to the Met, taking over the role of Rodolfo in October and November performances of Bohèmespacer
