DETROIT (WWJ) – The Michigan Opera Theater has released the details of its opera and dance shows for their upcoming 2012-13 season.

The company’s 42nd opera season, entitled “Drama in the D,” will include debuts from several acclaimed artists including Handel, Rossini and Verdi.

The scheduled slate also features two company premieres, among them being Beethoven’s Fidelio, which is set for a Spring 2013 release. Michigan Opera Theater General Director David DiChiera, said it will be a great way to kick off the spring season by having a 200-year-old theme that people can relate to today.

“The opera’s theme of courage, justice and freedom continue to make it socially relevant even in modern times,” DiChiera said.

The Detroit Opera House continues to be the home for dance as well as it returns for its 17th season. Notable performances include a return from the highly-touted Dance Theater of Harlem. The Opera House will also play host to the debut of the New York City Ballet’s exclusive touring company.

Both the opera and dance performances will debut in October and run through April 2013. Single ticket prices for the 2012-13 season will become available starting in September.
