Jan 4: 7:30 Cilea’s Adriana Lecouvreur Grand opera at its most delectably soupy, Cilea’s diva showcase concerns an 18th-century Parisian stage actress who falls headlong for the impecunious Count of Saxony and is consequently poisoned by a bouquet of faded violets sent by her romantic rival, the scheming Princess of Bouillon. The melodrama unfolds against the composer’s most beguiling and passionate score, which fits into the early 20th century’s tradition of verismo—a kind of heightened, emotionally turbocharged operatic naturalism. 

Jan 4: 8pm Jim Caruso’s Pajama Cast Party: Join the next episode of Jim Caruso’s Pajama Cast Party on YouTube with special guests that include y Broadway & Television star Ilene Graff (“Mr. Belvadere,” Grease, I Love My Wife), Broadway’s Zach Pizer (Dear Evan Hansen, Wicked, Sweeney Todd), Nashville guitarist/singer Ben Hale, and Postmodern Jukebox singer Therese Curatolo.

Jan 5: 7:30 Rossini’s La Donna del Lago Rossini, one of the great masters of glittering Italianate charm and spectacle, would seem an unlikely candidate to create an operatic retelling of Sir Walter Scott’s shadowy epic of clan warfare in 16th-century Scotland. But the heart of the drama is a classic love triangle—something every opera composer is comfortable with—and as Elena, the title heroine, is pursued by two tenors portraying suitors from rival factions, Rossini has the perfect opportunity to bring all of his musical brilliance to bear.

Jan 5: 8pm: Stars in the House: Game Night with surprise guests!
