Dayton Opera's 2015–2016 Ascend season explodes onto the Schuster stage with American Mosaic, a spectacular program including seven of Dayton's premier art forms. Then Dayton Opera presents two of the classics in opera repertoire with sweeping presentations of Verdi’s penultimate opera Otello, based on Shakespeare’s tragic play of the same name, and Puccini’s beloved Madame Butterfly, the heartbreaking story of a devoted wife willing to do whatever it takes in the name of love. Dayton Opera closes its season with an amazing operatic double bill. The program opens with the world premiere of a one-act opera written by our Music Alive Composer-in-Residence, Stella Sung, entitled The Book Collector. Carl Orff's compelling Carmina Burana rounds out the second half. Both works are fully staged with dynamic soloists, large chorus and the full Dayton Ballet company.
