Pittsburgh Opera To Present ‘Moby Dick’ For The First Time

The Pittsburgh Opera will presents Jake Heggie’s acclaimed “Moby-Dick” for the first time.

As part of the company’s initiative to bring new, American operas, the Pittsburgh Opera will showcase the work in March. Based on the famous novel of the same name by Herman Melville, the opera will be showcased in a co-production with the Utah Opera. OperaWire’s review noted, “Jake Heggie’s Masterwork Soars In Solid Production.”

The world-class cast will include two singers making their Pittsburgh Opera debuts. Canadian tenor Roger Honeywell sings the demanding role of Captain Ahab, while former Pittsburgh Opera Resident Artist Sean Panikkar takes the role of Greenhorn.

Michael Mayes makes his debut as Starbuck while Musa Ngqungwana, also in his debut season, sings Queequeg.

Antony Walker conducts Kristine McIntyre’s production.

The opera runs from March 17-25, 2018.
