Religion Will Get You Into Trouble

Today's Twitter activity brought a request for more themed opera seasons, so here's the first that occurred to me.


  • Khovanshchina, Mussorgsky
  • Les Huguenots, Meyerbeer
  • La Juive, Halevy
  • St Francois d'Assisse, Messiaen
  • Le Martyr de St. Sebastien, Debussy (Yes, this is a little bit of a cheat, but oh, how I loved it at SFS during the centennial season)
  • Theodora, Handel
  • The Bassarids, Henze
  • Parsifal, Wagner
  • Moses and Aron, Schoenberg
  • Dialogs of the Carmelites, Poulenc
  • Palestrina, Pfitzner
  • Moses in Egypt, Rossini
  • Don Carlos, Verdi (and I mean that s at the end)
  • Susannah, Floyd
  • The Crucible, Ward
  • The Gospel According to the Other Mary, Adams
  • The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, Adamo
  • Giovanna d'Arco, Verdi
  • Jeanne d'Arc au Bucher, Honneger
  • The Maid of Orleans, Tchaikowsky

An impressive season, especially considering how quickly you whipped it together.

2 random thoughts: thanks for excluding Massenet. And 2) I saw Gospel of Mary M two or three times. I don't know if I have another performance in me so soon. I'd be more interested if I knew a revision was in the works.

Oops. I hadn't seen the other comment when I submitted mine.

Saint Joan by Tchaikovsky.

That's up as The Maid of Orleans. I was not very impressed with the work when SFO did it a decade back for Zajick.

Rob, I'm putting up The Bassarids and Theodora but skipping the others. :)
