  2. Giacomo Puccini: Madama Butterfly

    March 15 - March 19 @ Harrison Opera House

    Puccini’s timeless masterpiece takes the Virginia Opera stage rendering this heartbreaking drama and mesmerizing score, featuring the poignant aria “Un bel di”. A tale of love and sacrifice set against a clash of cultures, Puccini’s use of authentic Japanese themes and soaring Italian lyricism creates a powerful emotional experience. Soprano Danielle Pastin, who charmed audiences as Liù in Puccini’s Turandot with Virginia Opera in 2016/2017, sings Cio-Cio-San, opposite tenor Matthew Vickers as the American naval officer who loves her and leaves her. The orchestra for this production is provided by the Richmond Symphony Orchestra. Running time: 2h 57m including intermission Sung in Italian with English Supertitles Join Dr. Glenn Winters for his “Opera Up Close” pre-curtain talk forty-five minutes before each performance for his informative and entertaining insights on each production.

  4. Virginia Stage Company: Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eyes

    March 20, 7:30 PM - March 24 @ Wells Theater

    Adapted from Nobel Prize and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Toni Morrison's first novel, this play explores race and class during the post-Great Depression era. Young Pecola Breedlove prays for Shirley Temples' blue eyes, sure that love and acceptance will follow; but for a young black girl in Ohio in the 1940's, fitting in is easier wished for than done. This poetic narrative illuminates the destructive powers of racism, colorism, and how the dynamics of family and community can lift us up or tear us down. Produced in collaboration with Norfolk State University Theatre Company.

  9. Virginia Symphony Orchestra: A Mozart Celebration

    March 23, 8:00 PM @ Chrysler Hall

    Guest conductor Scott Yoo, Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Mexico City Philharmonic, takes the helm of this magnificent Mozart program. Symphony No. 39 is the first of a set of three symphonies, the last set he composed. Its opening is “so majestic that it so surprised even the coldest, most insensitive listener.” The program opens with the Overture to The Magic Flute before Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante, a work that blends symphony with concerto in this small-ensemble masterpiece. With its rich harmonies and incandescent themes, the work has inspired arrangers and composers for centuries. This beautiful piece, the only surviving complete concerto for this combination of instruments, features principal musicians of the VSO. Scott Yoo , conductor Sherie Aguirre , oboe Michael Byerly , clarinet Laura Leisring , bassoon Jacob Wilder , horn Mozart : Overture to The Magic Flute Mozart : Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat Major, K. 297b Mozart : Symphony No. 39
