A Singing In the Ear

The 2013 Summer Festival Season of the opera is cast and ready

Though the days grow shorter and darker and the impending chill of winter begins to chase us into our homes, a warm wave of summer anticipations blows into Santa Fe. Today, Santa Fe Opera’s General Director Charles MacKay is the bearer of some good news


Tickets for the 2013 Summer Festival Season are now available for purchase from the Santa Fe Opera box office. The casting for the productions is complete.


The season includes Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, Offenbach’s The Grand Duchess of Gérolstein, Rossini’s La Donna del Lago, Verdi’s La Traviata and the world premiere of Oscar, by Theodore Morrison.


Offenbach’s opera opens the season, conducted by Emmanuel Villaume of this past summer’s The Pearl Fishers. The acclaimed 34-year-old Leo Hussain conducts La Traviata, and the beloved young Zachary Nelson—perhaps you remember him as Angelotti in last summer’s Tosca—becomes, this summer, Figaro. Daniela Barcellona, originally cast to play Malcolm in La Donna del Lago, withdrew from the role. But Marianna Pizzolato, the reputable mezzo soprana from Italy, sings in her place.

So, as the heat of the summer, the green of the trees and the brilliance of the flowers drift away from your memory, let the sweet notes of anticipation carry you through the winter and toward the Santa Fe Opera of 2013.

Tickets may be purchased from the website in mid-October, but are presently available at the box office.
