Famed for their annual Nutcracker, the acclaimed Rockville Civic Ballet's latest production boasts a trio of dances. The Last Duchess is inspired by an intriguing Robert Browning poem, in which a duke shows off a portrait of his wanton wife, insinuating that he's gotten rid of her for good. Also on the program are the works Saturday Night Social, a fun and entertaining romp set to Aaron Copland's Rodeo, and Danse D'Enesco, a folk dance-influenced piece that's described as bright and fast-moving.

Outstanding singing, great music, nice production. All in all a revelation about a piece that is infrequently performed. Plot of the opera is somewhat silly, but that is not unusual for operas. One more performance (Mon. night, 11/17), so take advantage of it if you have a chance.
Renée Fleming, one of the greatest sopranos of our day, makes her WNO debut as the infamous Lucrezia Borgia, a role she shares with Sondra Radvanovsky.
Composed by Gaetano Donizetti
Libretto by Felice Romani
Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
The running time for this production is approximately two hours and 42 minutes including two 20-minute intermissions.
