The Longest Short List

Some brainstorming about 2008 repertoire possibilities, completely in the abstract. When we begin auditions (in less than a week!), the list will quickly be winnowed.


The Return of Sir Benjamin to The Barns

Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Rape of Lucretia


The Perennial Handel Wish List

Agrippina, Alcina, Ariodante, Flavio, Giustino, Hercules, Partenope, Rinaldo, Semele


Mozart, Haydn & Friends

Cosi fan tutte, Die Entf├╝hrung aus dem Serail, Lucio Silla, Il Re Pastore, Zaide

Il Mondo della luna (Haydn)

La Capricciosa corretta (Martin y Soler)

Il Re Teodoro in Venezia (Paisiello)


More Baroque

Il mondo alla roversa (Galuppi)

Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria

Dido & Aeneas


Long Shots

Merry Wives of Windsor

I Capuleti ed i Montecchi

Ariadne auf Naxos

Un Giorno di Regno (Verdi)

Donne curiose, I quatro rusteghi (Wolf-Ferrari)

Docteur Miracle (Bizet)


Rip-Roarin' Rossini... Always a good time :)

L’equivoco stravagante, La gazza ladra, L’inganno felice, La scala di seta, La gazzetta, La pietra del paragone



Don't draw any premature conclusions. History has shown that it's entirely possible for something not on the October short list to appear on our stage the following summer!
