LA FILLE DU RÉGIMENT
The Daughter of the Regiment
A military brat, her aristocratic heritage, and her hilarious trials of love.
Vive la France! Vive l’amour! Donizetti, the great master of Italian opera, proved he could do it all with this French romantic comedy that charms and dazzles as one of the most spectacular vocal showcases in all of opera.

COSÌ FAN TUTTE
Thus Do They All
Two sisters, their jealous fiancés, and a test of love that becomes a dangerous game.
Fiordiligi and Dorabella, sisters, are engaged to Ferrando and Guglielmo, who set out to prove to Don Alfonso how faithful their fianceés are. Alfonso wagers a bet that the women can be seduced in just one day, and so the games begin. Just as the sisters are told that their lovers are “leaving for war,” they are visited by two handsome “strangers.” Sisters’ maid gets in the mix as a series of outrageous events unfold through some of the most sublime music Mozart ever wrote.

MARÍA DE BUENOS AIRES
The pulsing rhythm of the streets, a woman possessed, and her dance of life and death.
In the slums of Buenos Aires, there lived a woman named María, who people say was “born on the day God was drunk.” She is seduced into a deadly underworld by the spirit of tango. Astor Piazzolla’s intoxicating *nuevo tango *music and the dreamy poetry of Horacio Ferrer, driven by the enthralling rhythm of an Argentine tango orchestra, will transport and transfix like nothing heard or seen before on the OH! stage.

The timeless tale, unspeakable heartbreak, told like never before.
It is the iconic story of the U.S. naval officer and the geisha girl, told through Puccini’s achingly beautiful score. But wait: how could either of them possibly have understood a word of what the other was saying? In a co-production with Pacific Opera Project (Los Angeles), OH! will dare to tell the story with a new bilingual (Japanese and English) libretto in this unprecedented presentation.
