NY City Opera's Broadway-ish season

The official season announcement, including casting, for New York City Opera’s new 2010-2011 season has been released. By now, I'm sure you've all seen this ... but, Friendlies - I had to post it anyway because I am so d@mned excited about it!

So.. first up, the season: Séance on a Wet Afternoon by Broadway, TV and movie score composer Stephen Schwartz - which debuted at Santa Barbara Opera and can be read about here, A Quiet Place by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Wadsworth - which encompasses his 1 Act opera Trouble In Tahiti (indeed!) - as well as Strauss’s Intermezzo and Donizetti’s Elixir of Love are among the lineup.

Also, a fall concert, “Lucky to Be Me: The Vocal Music of Leonard Bernstein” is set for November and will feature stage and screen stars Victoria Clark, Christine Ebersole, Kelli O’Hara, Donna Murphy, Michael Cerveris, Darius de Haas, and Michael Urie.

In the spring, April 21st to be exact, there will be a concert entitled: “Defying Gravity: The Music of Stephen Schwartz”. This spectacular evening will feature performances by Broadway stars Kristin Chenoweth, Raúl Esparza, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Elaine Paige, and will be hosted by Victor Garber.

You can read more about the season in today's New York Times.
