La Wally by Alfredo Catalani and Everest by Joby Talbot
Sunday, February 1
2:00 p.m.
Winspear Opera House
0.3 Miles from Museum Tower Dallas

The third production of the Dallas Opera's 2014-15 Heights of Passion season is an unusual double bill: the eagerly anticipated world premiere of Everest, preceded by the climactic final act of an 1892 rarity: Alfred Catalani’s La Wally. La Wally is a tale set high in the Austrian Alps about a free-spirited and fiercely passionate young woman who realizes, too late, that love delayed isn’t always love denied. British composer Joby Talbot’s first opera, Everest, is a tragic story set on the slopes of Mount Everest where luck and the weather can turn with equal ferocity and swiftness, and dreams die even for the most valiant of men. This ill-fated Everest expedition features tenor Andrew Bidlack, mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke, bass Kevin Burdette, and baritone Craig Verm. A stunning performance for the cultural sophisticate #NearbyMuseumTower.
