We are so delighted to continue our presentations of these great, but rarely-performed, operas of the Italian verismo and generazione dell’80 composers. In our first twenty-five years we have presented the North American Premiers of I Cavalieri di Ekebù, Guglielmo Ratcliff, La Farsa Amorosa and Sakùntala and the New York Premieres of L’Arlesiana and La Nave along with the many other operas that had not been heard in New York in over 70 years. We look forward to continuing our exploration of many more of these magnificent operas with great anticipation.
