Ronaldo Miranda - Variações Temporais, Beethoven Revisado (Temporal Variations, Beethoven Revised)
Alexander Miller World Premiere
Beethoven Symphony No. 9, "Choral"

Marcelo Lehninger Conductor  | Grand Rapids Symphony Chorus, Pearl Shangkuan, Director

Much of classical music speaks of humanity’s desire to live as one and in peace. Greatest of all is the the Ninth Symphony of Beethoven. To close the season, Marcelo Lehninger has chosen to present the Symphony No. 9 alongside a brand-new work by Grand Rapids Symphony’s own Ale Miller, plus a set of orchestral variations honoring Beethoven written by his fellow Brazilian composer Ronaldo Miranda. Beethoven’s final symphony invokes a merciful God whom Beethoven is certain will lead humankind to eternal brotherhood. Though cloaked in a humanistic poem by Schiller, the text to the ‘’Ode to Joy’ that concludes the Ninth Symphony leaves no doubt in the end how Beethoven feels we will achieve universal understanding among nations. The final lines are in part:“Be embraced, you millions…above the canopy of stars must dwell a loving Father. Seek Him above the canopy of stars!”

John Adams: Nixon in China - Mao Tse-Tung

Los Angeles Philharmonic

John Adams’ audacious first opera turned the music world on its head, creating a whole new genre, dubbed “CNN opera.” Unlike most operas written since, Nixon has entered the rarefied pantheon of the international repertoire. With Adams himself conducting and the acclaimed Elkhanah Pulitzer directing, this innovative production promises to be historic in its own right.

Strauss: Capriccio - Diener 6

The Santa Fe Opera: Crosby Theatre

John will be singing the role of Diener 6 in Strauss' Capriccio.

Only a master looking back on a lifetime of craft could have composed the unique, dazzling entertainment that is Capriccio — the opera that Richard Strauss called his “conversation piece for music.” In Capriccio, Strauss gives us two women of intoxicating allure: the incomparably sophisticated Countess Madeleine and her friend Clairon, a beautiful actress. The Countess's charm and artistic refinement are irresistible to the poet Olivier and his rival Flamand, a composer. In a classic debate, they vie for the primacy of their respective arts and for the Countess’s love.

Puccini: La Fanciulla del West - Trin

The Santa Fe Opera: Crosby Theatre

John will be returning to The Santa Fe Opera for their production of Puccini's La Fanciulla del West in the role of Trin.

A co-production with English National Opera. Last performed in 1995.
First performed at New York’s Metropolitan Opera in 1910.
A “spaghetti Western” tale of love, money, deceit, and forgiveness, La Fanciulla del West is an authentic take on America’s iconic Golden West, set to music by the composer of Madame Butterfly and Turandot. Full of color and action—firing pistols, poker, and whiskey—Puccini’s romantic portrait of the gold-mining frontier is inhabited by pitiless bandits, compassionate but rugged prospectors, and one extraordinary saloon owner named Minnie.

Bellini: Norma - Pollione

Los Angeles Opera: Dorothy Chandler Pavilion at the Music Center

John will be joining the company of Los Angeles Opera for their production of Bellini's Norma where he will be covering the role of Pollione.

A clandestine love affair brings two mortal enemies together during a time of war. But when Norma discovers that her beloved now loves another, a fiery new battle begins as betrayal, anguish and fury take the reins.

A superlative quartet of soloists is led by the extraordinary Angela Meade—hailed by Opera News as “a voice to be reckoned with”—in the iconic title role, opposite the Adalgisa of mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton, this year's winner of the prestigious Richard Tucker Award. From the sublime “Casta diva” to the blazing finale, Norma delivers an overwhelming feast of vocal fireworks.
