    Premiere: Teatro alla Scala, Milan, 1831. This opera is an extraordinary fusion of sublime melody, vocal challenge, and dramatic power. It examines an ageless and archetypal situation: a powerful woman compromises her ideals for love, only to find herself betrayed by her lover. But equally gripping is her relationship with the younger woman who is the new object of her former lover’s attention and in whom Norma sees both a rival and a second self. The title role demands dramatic vocal power combined with the agility and technique of a coloratura singer. It is a daunting challenge that few can rise to: those who have are part of operatic lore.

    The story of the touching and offbeat friendship between American writer and art-lover James Lord and Alberto Giacometti, as seen through Lord’s eyes and revealing unique insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and sometimes the chaos of the artistic process. Set in 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, Lord is asked by his friend, Giacometti, to sit for a portrait. The process, promises Giacometti, will take only a few days and so Lord agrees, ultimately wondering “how much longer can it go on like this?”

    Premiere: Freihaus-Theater auf der Wieden, Vienna, 1791. Die Zauberflöte—a sublime fairy tale that moves freely between earthy comedy and noble mysticism—was written for a theater located just outside Vienna with the clear intention of appealing to audiences from all walks of life. The story is told in a Singspiel (“song-play”) format characterized by separate musical numbers connected by dialogue and stage activity, an excellent structure for navigating the diverse moods, ranging from solemn to lighthearted, of the story and score. The composer and the librettist were both Freemasons—the fraternal order whose membership is held together by shared moral and metaphysical ideals—and Masonic imagery is used throughout the work. The story, however, is as universal as any fairy tale.

    Premiere: Teatro Costanzi, Rome, 1900. Puccini’s melodrama about a volatile diva, a sadistic police chief, and an idealistic artist has offended and thrilled audiences for more than a century. Critics, for their part, have often had problems with Tosca’s rather grungy subject matter, the directness and intensity of its score, and the crowd-pleasing dramatic opportunities it provides for its lead roles. But these same aspects have made Tosca one of a handful of iconic works that seem to represent opera in the public imagination. Tosca’s popularity is further secured by a superb and exhilarating dramatic sweep, a driving score of abundant melody and theatrical shrewdness, and a career-defining title role.

    Premiere: Teatro Cannobiana, Milan, 1832. Met premiere: January 23, 1904. L’Elisir d’Amore has been among the most consistently popular operatic comedies for almost two centuries. The story deftly combines comic archetypes with a degree of genuine character development rare in works of this type. Its ending is as much a foregone conclusion as it would be in a romantic comedy film today—the joy is in the journey, and Donizetti created one of his most instantly appealing scores for this ride.

    World premiere: Teatro Regio, Turin, 1896. Met company premiere: Los Angeles (on tour), November 9, 1900. La Bohème, the passionate, timeless, and indelible story of love among young artists in Paris, can stake its claim as the world’s most popular opera. It has a marvelous ability to make a powerful first impression and to reveal unsuspected treasures after dozens of hearings. At first glance, La Bohème is the definitive depiction of the joys and sorrows of love and loss; on closer inspection, it reveals the deep emotional significance hidden in the trivial things—a bonnet, an old overcoat, a chance meeting with a neighbor—that make up our everyday lives.

    Premiere: La Fenice, Venice, 1823. Semiramide encourages her lover Assur to murder her husband, King Ninus. Her son, Ninius, disappears, believed dead, and Semiramide rules in her own right. Fifteen years later, as the opera opens, she is about to announce the name of her successor. Idreno and Assur are the leading candidates for the throne and the hand of Azema, but it turns out that Semiramide has taken a fancy to young Arsace, her victorious military leader who has been summoned back to Babylon. However Arsace himself is in love with Azema, and she loves him. Not only that, but although he has been raised in the distant state of Scythia, something only the high priest Oroe knows is that Arsace is actually Ninius, the son of Ninus and Semiramide, rescued and spirited away to safety after the coup. As the queen announces that Arsace is her successor, the ghost of her late husband appears from his tomb, demanding that Arsace punish the late king’s murderers. Assur and Semiramide resort to mutual recriminations, while Oroe tells Arsace of his true identity. All the principals gather in Ninus’ tomb, where Assur has decided to kill Arsace. Oroe forestalls him by ordering Arsace to kill Assur, but the queen interposes herself in the darkness and is killed instead. Assur is arrested, and Arsace, horrified at having killed his own mother, finally accepts the throne with great reluctance.

    Premiere: Vienna, Court Theater, 1790. The third and final collaboration between Mozart and librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte is a fascinating paradox: a frothy comedy of manners with an intensely dark take on human nature; an old story (it has antecedents in Boccaccio, Shakespeare, and Cervantes, among others) with a startlingly modern tone; and a beautiful score depicting questionable behavior. Così fan tutte was only moderately successful at its premiere and remained just outside the standard repertoire for more than a century. Così still poses unique challenges, and correspondingly unique rewards, for the public today. Every possible impression of love—from the loftiest to the basest—is explored in this extraordinary opera.

    Luisa Miller is in love with a stranger, and like all fathers, Miller is worried about this suitor. His suspicions are correct — the man calls himself Carlo, but is really Rodolfo, son of the powerful Count. The double-crossing Wurm knows his true identity, and reveals it to Miller, craftily trying to win Luisa for himself. He also tells the Count that his son Rodolfo is in love with Luisa. The Count is furious — he has higher plans for his only son's marriage. He arrests Miller, and tries to arrest Luisa too, before Rodolfo intervenes. Wurm tells Luisa the only way to save her father from the Count is to write a letter, claiming she never loved Rodolfo and pledging herself to Wurm. Distraught, Luisa agrees, and Wurm's poisonous plan is set in motion…
