Top 5 Operas to See This Weekend – International (3/30-4/1): Anna Netrebko, Christiane Karg & Michael Fabiano Headline Weekend

Royal Opera House

This weekend will be filled with a number of stars singing some of their most acclaimed roles. But what will make this weekend even more special is that it will feature a world premiere, a rarely performed Verdi gem, and a rarely performed baroque piece.

Here is a look.

Rusalka – Prague National Opera, Czech Republic

Kerri-Lynn Wilson makes a star appearance at the podium of the National Opera with an all-Czech cast. Dana Burešová sings the title role with Richard Samek as the Prince. Dvorak’s operatic masterpiece is a national gem and one of the most performed works in the Czech Republic.

La Calisto – Bayerische Staatsoper, Germany 

Cavalli’s rarely performed opera comes to life in David Alden’s production conducted by Christopher Moulds. Christiane Karg sings the title role alongside an ensemble that includes Dominique Visse, Karina Gauvin, Anna Bonitatibus, Luca Tittoto, and Alessio Arduini.

Il Corsaro – Palau de Les Arts, Spain

Michael Fabiano, Kristina Mkhitaryan, and Oksana Dyka headline a new production of Verdi’s early opera. The new production, which will be seen on Easter Sunday, will be directed by Nicola Raab and conducted by Fabio Biondi.

Coraline – Royal Opera House-United Kingdom

Mark Anthony Turnage’s new opera “Coraline” continues its run with two performances at the Barbican Theatre. Aletta Collins directs the new work, which is scheduled to star Mary Bevan and Alexander Robin Baker. Sian Edwards conducts the new production.

Macbeth – Royal Opera House, United Kingdom 

Anna Netrebko brings her signature Lady Macbeth to the Royal Opera for the first time alongside Zeljko Lucic in the title role. Yusif Eyvazov and Ildebrando D’Arcangelo round out the cast with Antonio Pappano conducting the Verdi’s chilling score.
