Director Olivier Tambosi returns to oversee his imaginative staging, a co-production with Finnish National Opera, which premiered at San Francisco Opera in 2010 to considerable praise.
Russian conductor Mikhail Tatarnikov makes his Company debut leading the San Francisco Opera Orchestra and a brilliant ensemble cast featuring German soprano Nadja Michael in the pivotal role of Emilia Marty, American tenor Charles Workman in his San Francisco Opera debut as Albert Gregor and American baritone Stephen Powell as Baron Jaroslav Prus.
And by the way, a very revealing interview with Ms. Michael is featured in the Encore Magazine, available only at the Opera House. Another great production.
