“More wait!”

New York City Opera today offered a demi-announcement of half their next season.

The season will open with the Glimmerglass Festival staging of Robert Ward‘s The Crucible, which the company premiered in 1961. Francesca Zambello directs the production which opens on September 6, i.e., three months from tomorrow. No casting details have been released.

The season will close with a new commissioned work, Stonewall, with music by Iain Bell, libretto by Pulitzer Prize-winner Mark Campbell, and direction of Leonard Foglia.  The production opens June 19, 2019. No casting details have been released.

In between September and June the company will presumably offer two other productions, and your guess is as good as mine.
