The week in NY opera (October 1-7)

Metropolitan Opera
Elisir (M/F), Carmen (T/SE), Turandot (W/SM), Trovatore (Th)
Same shows as last week. Carmen is good. Trovatore, which is hideously undersold and lacks star casting, at least has an excellent recent production.

Link for weekend ticket lottery drawing here; enter by midnight ET.

Le Poisson Rouge
Gotham Chamber Opera: Orientale (M/W)
A baroque-romantic-exotic traditional music/multimedia mashup.

Alexander Kasser Theater (Montclair State University)
Dog Days (F/S/SuM)
I feel a bit bad about not seeing or mentioning the premiere of this show last weekend, but the new opera by David T. Little and librettist Royce Vavrek plays again this week. The trailer below may help you judge for yourself whether it may merit an out-of-town trip (bus service does run from Port Authority):
