Odyssey Opera 2019-20

Odyssey Opera is a small company in Boston that agrees with me about the value of a themed opera season. Here's their 2019-20 season, which makes me want to cry (and relocate temporarily):

  • Henry VIII, by Camille Saint-SaĆ«ns, concert performance, September 21, 2019, Jordan Hall
  • Maria, Regina d'Inghilterra, by Giovanni Paccini, fully staged, November 1 and 3, 2019, Huntington Avenue Theater
  • The Chronicle of Nine, Arnold Rosner, semi-staged, February 1, 2020, Jordan Hall
  • Elisabetta, Regina d'Inghilterra, by Gioachino Rossini, fully staged, March 13 and 15, 2020, Huntington Avenue Theater
  • Gloriana, by Benjamin Britten, concert performance, April 11, Jordan Hall
  • Merrie England, by Edward German, June 12 and 14, fully staged, Jordan Hall
I'm not going to post casting information for this staggering season except to mention that Gloriana - a great rarity - stars ANNA CATERINA ANTONACCI, giving you multiple reasons to grab a ticket immediately. The soprano is rarely seen in the US and is a tremendous performer.

Oh, yeah, the theme is The Tudors, to state the obvious.
