Guess The 2016/2017 Season!

Are you excited to find out what we have in store for our 2016/2017 season? We can’t wait to tell you! That’s why this week, we’re giving you some clues. Get in on the fun and guess what will be on our mainstage in the coming season, which starts this fall.

Just how well do you know opera? (And if you don’t, now’s the time to get excited.) There are two ways that you can guess the 16/17 season this week. Here they are.

Let’s Talk About Icons

Each day this week, we will release an image of an object that symbolizes of one of the operas in the coming season. We’ll roll them out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest and they’ll also be added to this post.

Comment below or on any of our “How Well Do You Know Opera” social media posts and guess which production the icon is from. If you guess right, you will be entered to win a special prize.

But that’s not all! All winners will be entered to win a GRAND PRIZE – two tickets to the Plácido Domingo and Renée Fleming concert on March 18.

Let the guessing games begin! In what opera might you see this?

  1. Rita Horiguchi says:

    Could the opera where the beer mug is shown be “Die Meistersinger?” There are others, of course, where a fair is depicted, for example, Faust by Gounod…

  2. Chiedu Egbuniwe says:

    It’s Macbeth. The brindisi drinking mug and a crown that looks vaguely Scottish. Macbeth mounted for Domingo?

  3. Charles Souw says:

    3.Manon?the little prince?

  4. charles souw says:

    Damnation of Faust, Macbeth, the little prince?

  5. HV says:

    Tales of Hoffman and Macbeth – easy if you know where to look! Can’t figure the sand dunes. Maybe Aida?

  6. John Schiavone says:

    Object #4: the moon:
    Could it refer to Dvorak’s “Rusalka”?

  7. Beatriz y Nicolas says:

    Picture games:
    1 = beer mug of HOFMANN
    2 = crown of MACBETH
    3 = sands of Egypt in AKHNATEN
    4 = moon at the beginning of SALOME
    5 = suitcase of NOZZE DI FIGARO or COSI FAN TUTTE
    or Glass’s THE VOYAGE
    6 = brushes of Mario Cavaradossi in TOSCA

    Word games: (names of composers)
    glAss -> THE VOYAGE (?) or AKHNATEN
    stRauss -> SALOME
    puccIni -> TOSCA
    offeNbach -> HOFFMANN
    (Verdi is missing) -> MACBETH (with Plácido!)
