Canadian soprano Kirsten MacKinnon sings Micaela in Paul Curran’s new Carmen staging at Opera Philadelphia (Apr. 27–May 6). Daniela Mack sings the title role, and Yves Abel conducts, in his Opera Philadelphia debut. In June, MacKinnon sings the Fifth Maid in a concert Elektra, with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, before returning to her native country for Beethoven’s Ninth, with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

Soprano Olga Peretyatko-Mariotti and tenor Benjamin Bernheim sing a joint concert at the Philharmonie de Paris on May 14. The evening’s program includes Bellini, Gounod and Donizetti selections, with accompaniment from the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris. Later, the Philharmonie hosts William Christie’s Les Arts Florissants for Haydn’s Creation (May 16), featuring Sandrine Piau.

Composer Charles Wuorinen and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Annie Proulx’s Brokeback Mountain has its U.S. premiere run at New York City Opera, May 31–June 4; tenor Glenn Seven Allen sings Jack to baritone Daniel Okulitch’s Ennis. In July, Okulitch journeys west, singing General Groves in Peter Sellars’s new Doctor Atomic staging at Santa Fe, alongside Ryan McKinny (Robert Oppenheimer), Julia Bullock (Kitty Oppenheimer) and Ben Bliss (Robert Wilson). 

Elīna Garanča headlines German actress/director Alexandra Liedtke’s new production of Samson et Dalila at Wiener Staatsoper, May 12–21, singing Dalila to Roberto Alagna’s Samson. The biblical epic doesn’t end there for Garanča: after Vienna, she and Alagna reprise their roles stateside, for the Met’s new staging by Tony Award-winning director Darko Tresnjak, who makes his house debut. 

Lessons in Love and Violence, the latest work from librettist Martin Crimp and composer/conductor George Benjamin—collaborators on 2012’s Written on Skin—has its world premiere at London’s Royal Opera House (May 10–26). Baritone Stéphane Degout creates the role of the King, with soprano Barbara Hannigan as his wife; Katie Mitchell (also of Written on Skin) directs. Degout then heads to Paris’s Opéra-Comique, singing Golaud in a concert Pelléas, then Hamlet in a new production by Cyril Teste. spacer
