Music Center Opera sets 93-94 sked

Productions of Puccini’s “La Boheme” and “Madama Butterfly,” as well as a summer musical, are highlights of the Los Angeles Music Center Opera’s 1993-94 season, announced yesterday by company general director Peter Hemmings. Plans call for a seven-opera season, running Sept. 9 through May 12.

A summer musical (the title of which has not yet been released) is planned for August. LAMCO presented Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma!” a couple of years ago.

The season’s opener will be a new production of “La Boheme,” to be directed by Herbert Ross, conducted by Placido Domingo.

Subsequent productions will include: Verdi’s “Un Ballo in Maschera” (Sept. 10 ) with Domingo in the leading role; Richard Strauss’s “Die Frau Ohne Schatten” (Oct. 31), designed by David Hockney; the Spanish zarzuela “El Gato Montes” by Manuel Penella (Jan. 19, 1994), featuring Domingo, Justino Diaz and Veronica Villarroel; a revival of LAMCO’s production of “Madama Butterfly” (Feb. 23) with Maria Ewing; a revival of the company’s “The Marriage of Figaro” (April 12) directed by Peter Hall; and Richard Strauss’s “Die Rosenkavalier” (May 29) with Frederica von Stade.

Opera officials also announced that the Peter Sellars/John Adams/Alice Goodman opera “The Death of Klinghoffer,” which was to have been presented this fall in conjunction with the Los Angeles Festival, has been postponed for at least one year. Hemmings said the decision was made for economic reasons.
