Suleyman Pasha

In this hilarious nod to The Barber of Seville and The Marriage of Figaro, the ghost of Marie Antoinette is upset about her untimely ending, so her favorite playwright, Beaumarchais, attempts to amuse her with a new work. He produces an opera within the opera starring Figaro, Count Almaviva and Susanna, who try to save the queen from her beheading in a fast-moving and tuneful production.

“It’s comic and serious, entertaining and erudite, silly and thoughtful, emotional and mysterious, harrowing and uplifting, intimate and over-the-top — and the more times you see it, the more you’ll find in it and the more you’ll get out of it. It helps to be an opera or history buff to get all of the references, reminiscences and send-ups, but it’s not necessary.”  – Richard S. Ginell, LA Times

Presented in English with projected English text.

 

New co-production with The Glimmerglass Festival

Bass Soloist

The Great Lakes Chamber Orchestra and Chorus is proud to present our annual Messiah concert.  The performance includes Parts I, II and III of this beloved work. Handel’s Messiah, an oratorio, is set in three sections, the first concerns the Prophecy and the Nativity, the second the Passion and Resurrection and the final section, the Resurrection of all humankind. This event will be held at GREAT LAKES CENTER FOR THE ARTS.

Collatinus

Thanks to a Metro Regional Arts Council Grant and generous funding from the national Sparkplug Foundation we'll be mounting a brand new production of Benjamin Britten's poignant opera, The Rape of Lucretia March 20-22 at The Southern Theater. Plus, this will be our orchestra debut! 
 

Leporello

SO HOT, HE’LL BURN

Don Giovanni is an egotistical and infamous womanizer, brazen in his shameless seductions. But his betrayals soon catch up to him when divine retribution exacts the ultimate price. From the world’s most well-known composer, Mozart’s opera seamlessly blends dark comedy with biting social commentary in this smart and otherworldly story of a man who dares to defy hell itself.
