Die tote Stadt - New US production in 2014!

From the Dallas Opera website!!

"The third production of the 2013-2014 “By Love Transformed” Season is another first for the Dallas Opera: the North Texas premiere of German (sic) composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s twentieth-century masterpiece, DIE TOTE STADT (“The Dead City”), which opens in the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House on the evening of Friday, March 21, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

Before Hitchcock filmed “Vertigo,” Korngold created Die tote Stadt, the tale of one man’s dark obsession with the woman he loved and lost.

Featuring state-of-the-art projections and composed by a prodigy who evolved into one of the great masters of music for the Golden Age of Cinema (“The Adventures of Robin Hood,” “Deception,” “The Sea Hawk”), Die tote Stadt features an extraordinary cast that includes tenor Jay Hunter Morris in the role of Paul, fresh from his triumphs as Ahab in the San Francisco Opera revival of Moby-Dick and as Siegfried in the Met’s new Ring Cycle; Danish soprano Ann Petersen in her American debut as Marietta; and baritone Morgan Smith, the poignant voice of reason in TDO’s world premiere production of Moby-Dick, as Fritz.

Other principal singers include Australian mezzo-soprano Katherine Tier in her TDO debut as Brigitta; baritone Weston Hurt (La bohème) as Frank and tenor Andrew Bidlack (The Lighthouse) as Albert; with Jennifer Chung as Juliette, Angela Turner Wilson as Lucienne, and Danish tenor Jan Lund in his American debut as Victorin."
