October 19, Pittsburgh Opera, Madama Butterfly

A clash of cultures that unfolds on the intimate stage of the heart, a fragile geisha blinded by love marries a dashing American officer who then abandons her. Three years later, he returns with his “real” American wife only to take Butterfly’s son away. This shimmering production—it literally floats on water—comes to the U.S. for the first time from the Sydney Opera House.

October 26, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, Don Quixote

A joyous and festive classical ballet, brimming with virtuoso dancing, this distinctly Spanish spectacle is a tale of heroism, romance and illusions with chivalrous Conquistadors, spirited senoritas and Hispanic bravado.

January 26, Pittsburgh Public Theater, Amadeus

One of the triumphant successes of modern theater, Amadeus brings the dazzling legend and music of Mozart to thrilling life. Part biography, part murder mystery, this five-time Tony Award-winner pits the envious composer, Salieri, against the young genius, Mozart, in a fight to the finish with 18th-century Austria as the dramatic backdrop. Be there as the Public Theater unleashes this full-out, lavish production staged by Ted Pappas.
