LYRIC OPERA VIRGINIA (LOV) – America’s newest opera company for the 21st Century, formed around the most trusted name in opera in Virginia, Artistic Director Peter Mark, the acclaimed founder of opera in Virginia who has presented quality opera throughout the Commonwealth for over 36 years, announces its historic 2011-12 Inaugural Season.

& nbspj;

To close the season, LOV has created one of the most unique and innovative formats in the field of opera to support its mission and thrill its audiences.   Lyric Opera Virginia will present a “Jewel Box” production of Bizet’s Carmen. This Jewel Box opera production will be a fully theatrical 90-minute alternative to the original version of Carmen, complete with costumes, lighting and all the musical jewels for which the opera is known. The starring role of the Spanish gypsy Carmen will be performed by the mesmerizing and evocative Polish mezzo-soprano Magdalena Wor.Known for her rich, seductive mezzo sound perfectly suited to the role of Carmen, Ms. Wor received high acclaim by Virginia audiences as Suzuki in last season’s production of Madame Butterfly. Maestro Peter Mark conducts.

The Paramount Theater is proud to join forces with community leaders to bring high quality performing arts to our community.
