Here and there in Cincinnati this week

Here and there in Cincinnati this week

* On Saturday, the imported, important and inventive Berlin Komische Oper production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute opens at the Aronoff: the third offering of our Cincinnati Opera this summer and there it settles for a four-performance run.

The principal singers are fresh young voices, such as Rodion Pogossov, the Marcello of the recent Cincinnati La boheme.

In a variety of supporting roles, several recent CCM graduates join the roster of international pros, among them, Alexandra Schoeny, Amber Frasquelle, Jasmine Habersham, Paulina Villareal, Ashley Fabian, Abigail Hoyt, Brandon Scott Russell, and Jacob Kincaide.

* Think of Mozart as desert or, if you do not like sweets, as an appetizer. On Sunday you can have the main course if you go to the Kenwood Theatre and take in a tale about an ambitious politician who plunges his nation into chaos.

In case you were wondering, I am talking about Shakespeare’s Macbeth in a stage production of Canada’s Stratford Festival filmed last year.

See you at the theatre.
