NEW YORK CITY OPERA
Moses in Egypt (April 14–20)
Tickets on Sale TBA
La Périchole (April 21–27)
New York City Opera returns to City Center, its first home, for the first time since 1965 with brand-new productions of Gioachino Rossini’s Moses in Egypt, followed by Jacques Offenbach’s La Périchole.
Moses in Egypt, Gioachino Rossini’s rarely heard, large-scale bel canto opera has a libretto by Andrea Leone Tottola and music that places Rossini directly in the lineage of Mozart. Although the Italian composer revised Moses in Egypt several times, this new production presents his original version and is the opera’s first full NYC staging of the original version in more than 180 years. It will be directed and designed by Michael Counts.
Jacques Offenbach’s operetta La Périchole, with a libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy, is a lyrical satire loosely based on the life of one of the 18th century’s most famous Peruvians, Micaela Villegas, a wildly popular entertainer who was mistress to the head of state. It will be directed by Christopher Alden. www.nyco.org
In addition to these productions at City Center, NYC Opera will present two operas at BAM.
Tickets: Starting at $25

THE GIACOMO VARIATIONS May 31 – June 2, 2013
Tickets on Sale September 4
Writer, poet, gambler, military man, prison escapee, friend of princes, popes and cardinals, and above all, lover, from 1725 to 1798, the Venetian author and adventurer Giacomo Casanova has surely lived one of the most extraordinary lives of all time. But what worth has a rich and colorful life, when you are soon to die? John Malkovich portrays the master scoundrel and seducer during his twilight years in The Giacomo Variations, making its New York debut fresh from the world premiere in Vienna.
Under the direction of Austrian Michael Sturminger, Malkovich and co-star Ingeborga Dapkünaité perform scenes from Casanova's 1790 memoir, Histoire de ma vie. As Casanova reminisces about one of his close friends,
Mozart's librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte, we hear excerpts from some of Mozart's best-known operas – Cosi Fan Tutte, Don Giovanni and The Marriage of Figaro – performed live by a Wiener Academy Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Martin Haselböck.

Barcelona Ballet (formerly Corella Ballet)
April 17-20 at New York City Center
World Premiere by Ángel Rojas and Carlos Rodríguez
Clark Tippet’s Bruch Violin Concerto
Christopher Wheeldon’s For 4
Barcelona Ballet (formerly known as Corella Ballet) returns to New York City Center April 17 – 20 for a second engagement following several successful U.S. tours.

The program also features Clark Tippet’s Bruch Violin Concerto and Christopher Wheeldon’s For 4. New York City Center is located on West 55th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues.
“2012 comes with an exciting change for my company,” Corella said, “something that I have been working on since the creation of the Ángel Corella Foundation in 2001: the establishment of Spain's only classical ballet company in Barcelona. With this move comes a new name for the company, Barcelona Ballet. The company is the same only it now has a new home and a new name. I created the company for the dancers and the audiences of Spain and not for myself, so I think it fitting that the company take on the name of one of the greatest cities in the world. All major European cities have a classical ballet company: Paris, London, Berlin and now Barcelona.”
The 2012 Barcelona Ballet New York City Center Season runs Tuesday, April 17 – Friday, April 20 at New York City Center (West 55th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues).
