Turandot by Giuseppe Verdi

Puccini’s final masterpiece opens the season under the baton of Music Director Nicola Luisotti, who conducted this melodically rich, colorfully orchestrated work to great acclaim at London’s Royal Opera House in 2009. This passionate tale of a princess whose cruelty masks her fear of love features some of the composer’s most glorious music, including the stirring anthem “Nessun Dorma.” It will be performed by an outstanding cast led by Swedish soprano Iréne Theorin, “the world’s reigning Turandot” (Opera Britannia); Adler Fellow Leah Crocetto, an “outlandishly gifted soprano” (San Francisco Chronicle); and Marco Berti, “one of the preeminent Italian singers of his generation” (MusicalCriticism.com).


Carmen by Georges Bizet

No one can resist the ultimate femme fatale. Thrilling but dangerous, the captivating, capricious Gypsy Carmen is one of the most vivid characters in all of opera, and Kate Aldrich embodies her as well as any performer today. The sultry mezzo-soprano is “an impressive Carmen…who brought her alluring physique and rich, healthy voice to this touchstone role” (The New York Times).

The classic Jean-Pierre Ponnelle production also features tenor Thiago Arancam, fresh from his success in San Francisco Opera’s Cyrano de Bergerac (2010), as Don José, the soldier who falls under Carmen’s spell. Paulo Szot, a Tony Award winner for South Pacific adored for his “sultry bedroom eyes and …rich, commanding baritone” (The New York Times), promises to be a breathtaking bullfighter, with Adler Fellow soprano Sara Gartland as Micaëla. Music Director Nicola Luisotti conducts.

Prior to each performance, please join Yale alums for a casual no-host reception and talk at the Dress Circle North Promenade in the Opera House. Details and directions will be sent to participants the week of the event. 


We strongly suggest that you order early as performances often sell out. Seating is assigned at the time of purchase and is not reserved in advance of this offer. Discount is available through this special web page only, not by phone or in person, and expires the night before each performance.
