One man's obsession leaves a lethal wake of destruction in Jake Heggie's triumphant new opera of Herman Melville's 19th-century literary masterwork. Bent on killing the fabled white whale that severed his leg, Captain Ahab relentlessly scours the ocean, without regard for the living souls who serve him aboard the Pequod. Among the loyal crew – including lookout Greenhorn, cabin boy Pip, and island native Queequeg – only first mate Starbuck recognizes the futility of their pursuits. As Ahab spirals further into madness with each rising wave, no one can escape the inevitable, epic showdown between man and beast, fanaticism and reason. Performance is 3 hours. Ticket costs vary from $25-$300.
