Today, March 3, I finally get to tell you all about the operatic goodness that will be WTO’s 2016 Season!
I’ve been wanting to bring back Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia ever since I started producing at The Barns, and this is the year. A perfect cast of 8 returning artists in a thought-provoking, compelling and beautiful new production. Complete with a series of events that will give this opera the kind of context it craves: check out The Lucretia Project.
Also on my wish list for the last 5 years has been a rollicking re-discovered 18th century gem that’s been making the rounds recently in Europe. Gassmann’s L’Opera Seria is the love child of Noises Off and Mozart’s Impresario. Complete with coloratura fireworks. New production, of course.
OK, I’m back to making the donuts. More soon!
