SUMMER 2018 IN REVIEW
Wolf Trap Opera’s mainstage season featured new productions of Mozart’s Idomeneo, Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette (both at The Barns at Wolf Trap) and a new Filene Center production of Verdi’s Rigoletto.
Two additional productions were part of the WTO’s UNTRAPPED initiative: Weill’s The Seven Deadly Sins (part of the Halcyon By The People Festival) and Hanlon’s Listen, Wilhelmina! (at the Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods at Wolf Trap National Park.)
