One of Boston's newest opera companies, Odyssey Opera, made its premiere in the fall of 2013 with a concert performance of Wagner's "Rienzi." After a promising opening performance, their long-awaited 2014 season has finally been announced.
Odyssey Opera will present its first fully-staged opera, Verdi's "Un Giorno di Regno," on June 11 and 13, 2014 at the Boston University Theatre. Between performances of "Un Giorno di Regno", the double bill of Mascagni's "Zanetto" and Wolf-Ferrari's "Il Segreto di Susanna" will feature on June 12 and 14.
Later in the 2014 season, Odyssey Opera gives Korngold's "Die Tote Stadt" its Boston premiere in concert form. "Die Tote Stadt" will feature on 13 September for a one night only performance at the NEC's Jordan Hall.
All performances will be led by Odyssey Opera's Music Director, Gil Rose.
