- Medea, by Cherubini (since I'm in the middle of Berlioz's memoirs, this is especially intriguing)
- Akhnaten, by Glass (West Coast premier of the fully-scored version - Oakland Opera Theater did a reduced version a few years ago with Paul Flight in the title role)
- Moscow, Cherry Town, by Shostakovich (I'd never heard of it either!)
- The Difficulty of Crossing a Field, by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang
What a lineup!
