NEWS RELEASE

Syracuse Opera
Announces 2011-2012 Season

(Syracuse, N.Y., June 3, 2011) – General & Artistic Director Catherine Wolff announces Syracuse Opera's 2011-2012 season; productions include LA TRAVIATA, CARMINA BURANA, and MADAMA BUTTERFLY.

LA TRAVIATA
Guiseppe Verdi

Friday, October 21, 2011 at 8:00 p.m.
Sunday, October 23, 2011 at 2:00 p.m.
Crouse-Hinds Theater, John H. Mulroy Civic Center
Sung in Italian with projected English titles.

Out of control is Violetta's lot in life. Beautiful things and beautiful people, gay parties and clever conversation are like her, the ornaments of wealthy men's lives. Life's deeper meaning comes to her in Alfredo's love; and Violetta gives her heart to the younger man. Verdi's operatic masterpiece is a nuanced telling of this passionate drama where time runs out on a rare, true love.

CARMINA BURANA
Carl Orff

Friday, February 10, 2012 at 8:00 p.m.
Sunday, February 12, 2012 at 2:00 p.m.
Crouse-Hinds Theater, John H. Mulroy Civic Center
Sung in Latin and Middle High German with projected English titles.

Out of time is Carl Orff's masterpiece of total theater presented fully staged as the composer intended, with stage action, dance, choreography, lighting and dramatic visual design. Orff's dynamic score celebrates life through all four seasons. A favorite musical choice of filmmakers, the score includes a compelling blend of pagan rhythm and sublime melodies.

MADAMA BUTTERFLY
Giacomo Puccini

Friday, April 20, 2012 at 8:00 p.m.
Sunday, April 22, 2012 at 2:00 p.m.
Crouse-Hinds Theater, John H. Mulroy Civic Center
Sung in Italian with projected English titles.

Out of reach is Cio-Cio-San's quest for happiness. Despite her efforts to accommodate the strange ways of her new American husband, Madama Butterfly is abandoned. When Lieutenant B.F. Pinkerton returns to Japan after a three-year absence, he brings a new wife – an agonizing twist for Cio-Cio-San.
