West Edge Summer Festival 2018

West Edge Opera has announced three operas for next summer:
  • Benjamin Britten's Death in Venice (1973).  Aschenbach will be sung by William Burden.  This is to be directed by Paul Curran.
  • Matt Marks' Mata Hari (2017) which premiered at Prototype Festival this year.  Tina Mitchell will play the title role.  This is to be directed by Paul Peers.
  • Luca Francesconi's "sexual psycho-drama" Quartet (2011)  This will be directed by Elkhanah Pulitzer.  "Brutal fury."
When the rarely performed Death in Venice is the closest to standard repertoire, we are predicting an adventuresome festival.
