Alison Moritz, Stage Director

Composed by Leonard Bernstein and based on Voltaire’s satiric comedy of the same name, Candide is the story of a young man (Candide) who sets off with his friends to find the true meaning of life. Their exploits along the way, including separation, war, mistaken identity, kidnapping, murder, and a shipwreck, cause them all to question their philosophy that “all is for the best." In the end, optimism remains, but good sense prevails.

The Impresario & Les Mamelles de Tiresias - Various Roles, Opera Orlando

04.22.16 to 04.24.16 |7:30pm & 2pm

Orlando, FL US

Michael Sakir, Conductor
Eric Pinder, Director

What will a struggling opera company do to stay afloat...? Anything the Impresario wants! In this unique, premiere pairing, Mozart's classic comedy "The Impresario" is updated to modern day Orlando, Florida where a struggling opera company desperate to do anything to survive must enlist the financial help of a flamboyant opera patron, Mr Deep-Pockets. He only makes one request; that the company use his two new soprano flings, Everly Shrills and Bethany Squeals in the company's next production. With all the needed backing from Mr Deep-Pockets, the Impresario can now do a piece he's always dreamed of, Les Mamelles de Tiresias or The Breasts of Tiresias; a surrealist piece by Francis Poulenc. The absurdist, gender-bending plot starts with a housewife (Terese) who is sick of doing chores and serving her husband so she removes her breasts (two balloons) and becomes a man (Tiresias) which leads to her husband taking on the role of the woman and now having to produce babies by himself which he does, only too well...

Eric Jacobsen, conductor

Une flûte enchantée - Monostatos, Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord

06.28.13 to 07.31.13 |8:30pm

Paris, France

Peter Brook, Director

The prodigal son born to be free as air, this "Flute" with a wandering soul was conceived to invite the audience to a tender intimacy and outsmart the pomps and vanities of the opera. Rid of the symbolism and the usual lot of scenic effects, it glows with its original freshness that takes us back to the sources of inspiration of an eternally young Mozart, surrounded by singers of talent, ready to improvise, to transpose, to explore new colours and new forms.

Die Zauberflote - Monostatos, Chicago Opera Theater

09.15.12 to 09.23.12 |TBD

Chicago, IL

Steuart Bedford, Conductor
Michael Gieleta, Director

During Brian Dickie's 12 seasons at COT, he has presented all of Mozart's most popular operas except The Magic Flute! It is a fitting farewell that a new production of this beloved opera will close Brian's last season with the company. Steuart Bedford, whose most recent success at COT was the acclaimed production of Britten?s Owen Wingrave in 2009, returns to conduct this masterpiece. Sung in an English translation by Jeremy Sams, this will also mark COT's first fall opera in 11 years. Bring the whole family to this new production of an opera treasure.

Die Zauberflote - Monostatos, Ravinia Festival

08.16.12 to 08.18.12 |7pm and 1pm

Highland Park, IL

James Conlon, Conductor
Michael Erhman, Director
Chicago Symphony Orchestra

Was The Magic Flute merely a populist vaudeville or a mystical tract on Masonic symbolism? Perhaps this something-for-everyone masterpiece is both; certainly its music encompasses virtually all of the styles of Mozart’s time, from Papageno’s catchy show tunes to the Queen of the Night’s nearly impossibly demanding bravura arias; from Sarastro’s lofty epiphanies to the heart-melting lyricism of Tamino and Pamina’s love songs. The genius of Mozart ensures that the work succeeds on multiple levels, all the while glorying in some of the most beloved music ever created by Salzburg’s favorite son, and performed in the seductively intimate confines of the Martin Theatre.
