    Humans and animals bump into one another in a moonlit Czech forest in Leoš Janácek’s humorous and tender allegory about the circle of life. Filled with dancing dragonflies, talking frogs, a litter of fox cubs and some endearingly tipsy humans, our beautiful new production by director Crystal Manich will warm the hearts and light up the faces of adults and children alike. Kostis Protopapas conducts.

    A woman with a past is given a second chance when she falls in love with a young student. From the sumptuous salons of belle epoque Paris, to bustling nightclubs and on to the French Riviera, we follow the beautiful Magda -“the swallow”- in her bittersweet journey to recapture the innocence of youth. This production will be staged by Tara Faircloth and Kostis Protopapas conducts the OSB premiere of Puccini’s only “operetta.”
