Summer season, New York edition

Although this next month is, as far as I can tell, an operatic desert, July brings some opportunities in and around the city.

Despite troubles in LA, film composer Elliot Goldenthal's new opera "Grendel" should begin its New York run July 11. It doesn't look all that promising, but who knows?

August in the city is better, with Zaide and Idomeneo at Mostly Mozart, and the Met's Rigoletto and Traviata in the parks.

Outside city limits:

Caramoor (Katonah, NY)
July 8 -- Puritani with Sumi Jo
July 22 -- Tancredi with Ewa Podles
New Jersey Opera Theater (Princeton, NJ -- the newer ~380 seat stage)
July 7, 9 (mat), 13, 22 -- Cosi
July 8, 14, 16 (mat), 20 -- Elisir
July 15, 21, 23 (mat) -- double bill of "Gianni Schicchi" and Michael Ching's "Buoso's Ghost"
Princeton Festival (Lawrenceville, NJ -- at the Lawrenceville School)
June 24; July 1, 9 (mat) -- Butterfly
July 1 (mat) -- The Old Maid and the Thief
There are, of course, plenty of events further afield, but these are in the range of a simple day trip.


  1. Why can't I find casting info anywhere for the Met in the Parks, do you suppose?

  2. Lots of TBA, I'm guessing.

    Last I checked, the official site doesn't even have schedule info. Nice details of next season, though.


Absolutely no axe-grinding, please.
