Top 5 Operas To See This Weekend – USA (3/23-25): NY City Dominates With Star Cast At Carnegie Hall, New Met Production & Other Gems

By David Salazar

This weekend’s choices are a unique mix. Yes, New York City dominates in four of our five choices, but once you take a look, you’ll see why.

Rinaldo – Carnegie Hall

Let’s just look at this cast under Sir Harry Bicket: Iestyn Davies, Jane Archibald, Joélle Harvey, Luca Pisaroni, Sasha Cooke, James Hall, and Jakub Joszef Orlinski. This is going to be a showcase of great singing at the temple of classical music. Sunday afternoon. Be there.

Piramo e Tisbe – little opera theatre of NY

Throughout the weekend, audiences can experience this New York City premiere, created by composer Johann Adolph Hasse and librettist Marco Coltellini. The work was created in collaboration with New Vintage Baroque.

Così Fan Tutte – Metropolitan Opera

The Met’s new production of “Così Fan Tutte” is undoubtedly a production that needs to be experienced. Aside from showcasing a wide range of unique artists, it also showcases some rather colorful visual qualities on the big stage. Whether you like your opera conservative or new and fresh, this is still worth checking out. The performance will take place on Saturday evening.

Morning Star – On Site Opera

On Site Opera takes viewers to the Museum at Eldridge Street on Sunday after for an experience of a lifetime. The opera tells the story of “an immigrant family struggling to find a better life on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in the early 20th century.” It might be hard to find a ticket as the performances have sold out rather quickly, though there might be a way to get into either one of the Sunday showcases, one at 1 p.m. and another at 6 p.m.

Le Nozze di Figaro – Palm Beach Opera

Mozart’s perennial masterpiece gets a showcase in Florida on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in a production by Stephen Lawless. Janai Brugger leads the cast as Susanna. Other cast members include Valeriano Lanchas, Elizabeth Bishop, Federico De Michelis, Marko Mimica, Lauren Michelle, Irene Roberts, Danielle MacMillan, Sarah-Jane Brandon, Caitlin Lynch, David Adam Moore, and Brett Polegato.
