The Grand Duchess Of Gerolstein with Susan Graham
This event is sold out. Standby numbers are available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning one hour before the start of this performance. Each person is given one number (good for one ticket), and may hold a number for one other person. After ticket-holders have been seated, numbers will be called in order and stand-by tickets will be sold as space allows.
Preview musical excerpts from the Santa Fe Opera’s new production of Jacques Offenbach’s The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein, featuring mezzo-soprano Susan Graham, prior to its summer 2013 premiere. Spoiled and domineering, the Grand Duchess gets what she wants—until she sets her sights on the young soldier Fritz, sung by tenor Paul Appleby. Graham joins Appleby, soprano Anya Matanovi?, and bass Kevin Burdette in a discussion moderated by director Lee Blakeley.
