I'm always a little suspicious about semi-staged operas but might try for tickets? Regards, Len

Lincoln Center’s Great Performers: A Peek at Next Season


A pair of trios — the three surviving Monteverdi operas, conducted by John Eliot Gardiner; and Mahler’s three final symphonic works, led by Simon Rattle — will anchor next season’s Great Performers series at Lincoln Center.

Monteverdi Doesn’t Sound a Day Over 449

Who better to mark the 450th anniversary of Claudio Monteverdi’s birth than Mr. Gardiner, who, after all, founded the Monteverdi Choir?

Mr. Gardiner will open the season in October by bringing the choir and his English Baroque Soloists to Alice Tully Hall for semi-staged performances of “Orfeo” (Oct. 18), “Il Ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria” (Oct. 19) and “L’Incoronazione di Poppea” (Oct. 21).

Mr. Rattle has been a New York favorite as chief conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic. Now, for his first concerts here as music director of the London Symphony Orchestra, he plans to lead that ensemble in three of Mahler’s final works in May 2018.

The Londoners will perform the Symphony No. 9; “Das Lied von der Erde,” featuring the baritone Christian Gerhaher; and the Symphony No. 10, completed after Mahler’s death.

A flurry of lieder, or art song, concerts in the spring of 2018 will focus on three of the world’s most praised song recitalists (alongside noted pianists): the baritone Simon Keenlyside, with Malcolm Martineau (Mar. 1); the tenor Mark Padmore and Paul Lewis (April 19); and the baritone Gerald Finley, joined by Julius Drake (May 2).

When Gustavo Dudamel, music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, brings the orchestra to David Geffen Hall in April 2018, he will conduct the New York premiere of a work by his predecessor, Esa-Pekka Salonen, along with Varèse’s “Amériques” and Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5. A second concert will feature two choral works: Leonard Bernstein’s “Chichester Psalms” and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. ... ction&_r=0
