Spoleto Festival USA has announced the production of three operas for 2005. These are:

Die Vögel (The Birds)

Lost when Braunfels was blacklisted by the Nazis in the late 1930s, the work has never received a fully staged performance in the US; this production will affirm Die Vögel's rightful place among major operas of the 20th century.

Performances dates: May 27; June 2, 4, 11

Don Giovanni

Inspired in part by Molière's play Don Juan about the notorious womanizer, Don Giovanni stands as a testament to Mozart's dramatic genius. The work's force and grandeur have bewitched music lovers for centuries; this Spoleto Festival production will only prolong the spell. The distinguished German director Günter Krämer has envisioned an innovative staging that will transform our historic Memminger Auditorium in startling ways: transcending the customary separation between stage and audience, a forest representing all four seasons will envelop the entire auditorium.

Performances dates: May 29, 31; June 3, 6, 9, 11

La bella dormente nel bosco

Ottorino Respighi originally premiered this delightful work for puppet actors supported by human voices in 1922; Vittorio Podrecca's renowned puppet theater troupe performed it around the world for many years. Now, the celebrated young American director/puppeteer Basil Twist breathes fresh life into this Sleeping Beauty, directing and designing a magical new production for the Dock Street Theatre.

Performances dates: May 28, 30; June 1, 4, 7, 10
