⓵ Gustavo Dudamel conducts Sonya Yoncheva (Mimì), Aida Garifullina (Musetta) and Atalla Ayan (Rodolfo) in Claus Guth’s new production of Bohème at Opéra National de Paris (Nov. 28–Dec. 31). After Paris, Garifullina sings Juliette to Saimir Pirgu’s Roméo at Gran Teatre del Liceu, before heading to Vienna for the Staatsoper’s Rigoletto, where she sings Gilda alongside baritone Roberto Frontali’s jester. 

⓶ Argentine filmmaker Lucrecia Martel, whose work has been honored at Cannes, TIFF and Venice and has won awards at Sundance and Berlin, makes her directorial debut in opera at Teatro Colón, with Giordano’s Andrea Chénier (Dec. 5–16). The production, led by guest music director Christian Badea, stars a fellow Argentine, tenor José Cura, who replaced Marcelo Álvarez as Chénier after a company dispute.

⓷ Francesca Zambello’s staging of The Little Prince lands at Washington National Opera in time for the holidays, Dec. 14–17. Conducted by James Lowe, the WNO revival, based on the classic storybook by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, invites children and adults alike to delight in another world. The opera, by Academy Award-winning composer Rachel Portman, will showcase the Domingo–Cafritz Young Artists alongside the WNO Children’s Chorus.

⓸ Italian conductor Speranza Scappucci leads concert performances of La Fille du Régiment at Opernhaus Zürich (Dec. 16–22) before moving on to a new production of Carmen at Opéra Royal de Wallonie-Liège. In February, Scappucci has a brief homecoming, conducting a new production of La Sonnambula at Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, before packing her bags for Vienna, where she paces Zeffirelli’s Bohème staging at the Staatsoper.

⓹ Following his summer run as Reimann’s Lear in Salzburg, Canadian baritone Gerald Finley appears at the Met as Athanaël to Ailyn Pérez’s Thaïs, Nov. 11–Dec. 2. In January, Finley travels to London, singing Scarpia in the Royal Opera House’s Tosca with two leading ladies, Adrianne Pieczonka and Angela Gheorghiu, before heading to Baden-Baden for Amfortas in Dieter Dorn’s new production of Parsifalspacer
