Four performances, March 26-April 6
One of the most widely performed new operas of the last 20 years, "Streetcar" (1998) will be given in a staged concert performance, with the singers fully staged and costumed, and the orchestra on stage. The only thing missing will be sets. "Because it¿s the ninth opera, there isn¿t time within our season for it to have a full production rehearsal period," Freud explained. "It won¿t feel in any sense like a concert." Fleming¿s co-stars will include the New Zealand baritone Teddy Tahu Rhodes (debut) as Stanley Kowalski, Susanna Phillips as Stella and Anthony Dean Griffey (debut) recreating his world-premiere role of Mitch. Rogister will conduct, with stage direction by Brad Dalton.
