January 18, 2015
P. I. TCHAIKOVSKY: The Maid of Orleans

Bolshoi Theater, Moscow

Bolshoi Theater Orchestra and Chorus
Tugan Sokhiev, conductor

CAST: Anna Smirnova (Joan of Arc); Arseniy Yakovlev (Raymond); Igor Golovatenko (Lionel); Oleg Dolgov (King Charles VII); Andrey Gonyukov (Dunois); Stanislav Trofimov (Archbishop); Petr Migunov (Thibaut d'Arc); Irina Churilova (AgnËs Sorel)

This neglected gem is Tchaikovsky's moody, Romantic take on one of history's most compelling and inspiring stories -- coming to us from the legendary theater that staged world premieres of several Tchaikovsky operas.

January 25, 2015
GIOACHINO ROSSINI: Aureliano in Palmira

Rossini Opera Festival, Pesaro

G. Rossini Symphony Orchestra
Chorus of the Teatro Comunale, Bologna
Will Crutchfield, conductor

CAST: Jessica Pratt (Zenobia); Lena Belkina (Arsace); Michael Spyres (Aureliano); Raffaella Lupinacci (Publia); Dempsey C'Rivera (Oraspe); Dimitri Pkhaladze (Gran sacerdote); Sergio Vitale (Licinio)

This story of romantic intrigue among warring leaders of the ancient world is rarely heard in modern opera houses, though it is home to some of Rossini's best-known music: Its rousing overture was later recycled to kick off his comedy, The Barber of Seville.

February 1, 2015
JULES MASSENET: Cleopatre

Champs-ElysÈes Theatre, Paris

Paris Opera Chorus
Mulhouse Symphony Orchestra

CAST: Sophie Koch (ClÈop‚tre); FrÈdÈric Goncalves (Marc-Antoine); Cassandre Berthon (Octavie); Benjamin Bernheim (Spakos); Jean-Gabriel Saint Martin (Severus); Olivia Doray (Charmion); Pierre-Yves Binard (Ennius)

Not performed until two years after the composer's death, Massenet's final opera tells the powerful story of one of the ancient world's most intriguing historical figures, and her ill-fated romance with Rome's Mark Antony.
