It's Short, but It's a Season

NYCO announces a four-opera, 16-performance season for 2012-13. Big sigh at the tiny scope, but it looks as though their model is edging toward Long Beach Opera's model, and LBO is one of the most interesting small companies around. (That is, they only do rare/unusual opera.) I can't link to an announcement on NYCO's web site, because the last press release posted is about casting for 2011-12 (rolling of the eyes, with thanks to Louse Barder for the press release).

Here's the lineup, anyway; casting TBD:

Thomas Adès: Powder Her Face: new production by Jay Scheib 
BAM Howard Gilman Opera House 
Feb 15, 21, & 23 at 7:30pm; Feb 17 at 1:30pm

Benjamin Britten: The Turn of the Screw: new production by Sam Buntrock 
BAM Howard Gilman Opera House
Feb 24 at 1:30pm; Feb 26, 28, & March 2 at 7:30pm

Gioachino Rossini: Moses in Egypt: new production by Michael Counts 
New York City Center
April 14 at 1:30pm; April 16, 18, & 20 at 7:30pm

Jacques Offenbach: La Périchole: new production by Christopher Alden
New York City Center
April 21 at 1:30pm; April 23, 25, & 27 at 7:30pm

Oh, yes, I would buy tickets for this season.
