Everest by Joby Talbot • On the slopes of Mount Everest, luck and the weather can turn with equal ferocity and swiftness, and dreams die even for the most valiant of men. British composer Joby Talbot’s first opera – a Dallas Opera world premiere with a libretto by Gene Scheer (Moby-Dick) – confronts the tragic events surrounding an ill-fated Everest expedition with a cast that includes tenor Andrew Bidlack, mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke, bass Kevin Burdette, and baritone Craig Verm. This eagerly anticipated Dallas Opera world premiere will be conducted by Nicole Paiement and staged by Moby-Dick director Leonard Foglia, with stunning visuals designed by Elaine J. McCarthy.
