Crouse Hinds Concert Theater, Mulroy Civic Center
411 Montgomery St., Syracuse

In Verdi's touching opera La Traviata (The Fallen Woman), the high-priced courtesan Violetta Valery has made Paris her playground and although she has many well-heeled admirers, she has never truly found love. All of that changes when she meets the young and impetuous Alfredo, who convinces the skeptical Violetta that his love for her is pure and true. When Violetta allows herself to follow her heart, the strict but hypocritical rules of 19th-century society force them apart. A short-lived final reunion between the two lovers showcases Verdi's immense skill as a composer and dramatist. Raquel Gonzalez, who stunned audiences last season as Tatiana in Eugene Onegin, will make her role debut as the ill-fated Violetta. Baritone Todd Thomas (Rigoletto) returns as Alfredo's disapproving but ultimately tender-hearted father Germont. Christian Capocaccia conducts, with stage direction by Stephanie Havey (Rigoletto). Opera newcomers will recognize the plot of La Traviata from the Baz Luhrmann movie-musical it inspired, Moulin Rouge.

Crouse Hinds Concert Theater, Mulroy Civic Center
411 Montgomery St., Syracuse

In Puccini's Madama Butterfly, set in turn-of-the-century Japan, 15-year-old geisha Cio-Cio-San renounces her occupation and religion so that she may marry the American naval officer B. F. Pinkerton. Following their wedding night, Pinkerton must leave but promises to return "when the robins build their nests." Three long years pass and Pinkerton does indeed return, but not to re-unite with the ever-faithful Butterfly. Instead, he wishes to take from her the last bit of happiness she possesses. Soprano Toni Marie Palmertree, having debuted the role of Butterfly at San Francisco Opera in 2016, will reprise the role for Syracuse Opera. CNY native Dinyar Vania returns to play Pinkerton, with baritone Troy Cook (Eugene Onegin) as Sharpless, the American Consul. Glenn Lewis of Pittsburgh Opera will conduct, with Alison Moritz making her Syracuse Opera debut as stage director. Musial theater aficionados will recognize the plot of Madama Butterfly as the inspiration for Claude-Michael Schönberg's Miss Saigon.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
