Palm Beach Opera to return to four operas next season

By David Fleshler

Palm Beach Opera will return to its usual four-opera lineup next season while continuing the cost controls imposed during the past year.

The company will present staged productions of Verdi’s Nabucco, Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte, and Puccini’s Tosca. Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice will be performed in a semi-staged concert version, reflecting the economizing measures that last December  brought Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in place of an opera.

The 2010-2011 season opens Dec. 10 with a performance of Nabucco, an early Verdi opera that tells the story of the Israelites’ exile to Babylon, last performed by the company in the 1985-86 season.  The season continues with Glucks’ Orfeo ed Euridice, a work the Palm Beach Opera has never performed, based on the Greek myth of a hero who tries to rescue his wife from Hades.

Casting for all productions is yet to be announced.

Subscriptions start at $78. For more information on the Palm Beach Opera’s coming season, call 561-833-7888 or go to

    I can’t believe they are asking people to subscribe without announcing casts for the operas. PB Opera is the only company that does that. Florida Grand has announced the casts for its operas next season. So have most companies who announce their season. Surely they know by now who they’ve hired for these operas, so why not publish the cast list?
