Operagasmic Production of the Week

Operagasmic Production of the Week

by Christie Connolley

I love to arrive early to the opera.  For one, I want to sit down and see what everyone else is wearing…. the gowns, the sequins, THE SHOES!  Once that is done, I delve into the program!  I want to read the ‘who’s who, all of the singers bios, and the miniature reproductions of their glossy 8 X 10′s (which I usually go back to during intermission and estimate how many years ago that photo was taken), the director’s notes, the conductor’s notes!  It is one of the best parts of going to the opera!  So let Operagasm get you ready with the down low on new and exciting upcoming productions.

The Operagasmic Production of the Week is Opera Omaha’s production of Bluebeard’s Castle!

The captivating story of Duke Bluebeard, his new wife, Judith, and a castle containing seven mysterious doors. The secrets that lie behind them are revealed one by one through rich, haunting music. Hal France returns to Opera Omaha to conduct this complex work featuring brilliant orchestral writing. Legendary opera singer, Samuel Ramey, performs the title role.
