Turiddu returns from war to find his love, Lola, married to another. In a scheme to induce jealousy, he seduces Santuzza. As swiftly as she is beguiled, Santuzza is discarded while Turiddu begins an affair with his old flame. After the conclusion of Easter mass, passions erupt and expose the ugliness of jealousy. With stirring melodies as iconic as the story, Cavalleria rusticana reveals the consequences of infidelity and the lengths we might go to for revenge. Ms. Hankey makes her Lyric Opera of Kansas City debut as Santuzza.

Zürich, Switzerland

A sparkling tale of twin romances. Thought-provoking and playful, Mozart’s classic opera offers humor and insight into human nature. This dense and radically modern production by Kirill Serebrennikov is from 2018, and was developed under exceptional conditions. The Russian director was under house arrest in Moscow, rendering him unable to attend rehearsals. But that didn’t detract from his artistic abilities, and critics and audiences alike were thrilled by the results. This revival is a bona fide new reading of the opera. The young, internationally sought-after mezzo-soprano, Samantha Hankey, returns to Zürich in the role of Dorabella.

Human and animal worlds collide in Leoš Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen, an enchanting, cinematic modern fable about a clever vixen who tries to outwit her captors. Music Director Roberto Kalb conducts, and Artistic Director Yuval Sharon directs his production from The Cleveland Orchestra, which uses playful projections to transform singers into forest creatures, with hand-crafted animations that evoke the fable’s comic- strip origins. “We are inviting the audience into a deeper reflection of how we interact with nature, think about nature, these forces—animals, trees, the seasons, our relation to the ever-shifting natural world,” says Sharon. This will be the first Detroit performance of one of Leoš Janáček’s great works; the score features some of the most beautiful music ever written.

Mozart’s classic opera puts love under the microscope with comic and disturbing results. Since Mozart's comedy first scandalized audiences in 1790, Così fan tutte has lost none of its sting. ‘All women do it,’ alleges the master manipulator Don Alfonso. Make up your own mind and revel in the wit and glamour of Jan Philipp Gloger's production, which returns to the Royal Opera House, conducted by Alexander Soddy and featuring a stellar cast. Mezzo-soprano Samantha Hankey reprises the role of Dorabella in her Royal Opera House debut.
