The Dallas Opera is now selling single tickets to their eagerly-anticipated 2016-2017 “60th” Season.

The upcoming season features both fully-staged operas and concert performances. See classic productions of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin from the Israeli Opera Tel Aviv-Jaffa, and Puccini’s Madame Butterfly—in a production new to Dallas—designed by Michael Yeargan for San Francisco Opera.

The 2016-17 Season also marks the return of the hugely successful 2010 Dallas Opera world premiere, Moby-Dick by Jake Heggie and Gene Scheer; as well as TDO’s first-ever productions of Benjamin Britten’s The Turn of the Screw (a Jonathan Kent production from Glyndebourne Opera) and Vincenzo Bellini’s bel canto masterpiece, Norma.

The Dallas Opera will also present a special, one-night-only concert event: Joby Talbot and Gene Scheer’s Everest—Friday, May 5, 2017—with stars from the original cast and video
projections designed by Elaine J. McCarthy.

Each opera features some of the greatest music of all time, captivating sets and costumes, orchestra, chorus, technological embellishments and world-class performers.

“Our 60th Season offers something for everyone! We believe audiences will be captivated by the spectacular music, intriguing story lines and unique settings of these five operas. As always, we have cast world-class artists in principal roles—as well as engaging conductors, directors and designers of the highest caliber,” notes Keith Cerny, the Kern Wildenthal General Director and CEO. “While we believe this music is some of the greatest ever written, opera is a tremendous form of entertainment that delights the eye and mind, as well as the ear. We hope everyone in North Texas will wish to take advantage of our magnificent offerings this season!”
