opera

One of the world's best-known opera stars, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, has announced that she will never sing in public again — bringing a long, storied career to a close.

OPERA San Antonio

OPERA San Antonio is about to stage its first production in the upcoming season.  

Mark Campbell is one of the most prolific and celebrated librettists in contemporary American opera. But, as he recently told an audience at the Guggenheim Museum, not everyone thought his latest project was a good idea.

Opera is big and expensive to produce—and it also doesn’t get much play outside of the theater. So Mark Covey and Kara Smoot, engaged to one another and both singers, are bringing the vocal arts to San Antonio through a new series of concerts, called simply the “San Antonio Concert Series.”

Alamo City Opera

The Alamo City Opera rolls out a new production this weekend. It's an opera with roots in a short story by one of the towers of American literature. 

"Rappaccini's Daughter is a story by Nathaniel Hawthorne. A haunting, chilling love story. And it's our first opera that's been adapted into Spanish," says director Mark Richter.

They're also taking the opera to an unexpected venue.
