Why See Opera San Jose - Moby Dick?
Call me Ishmael
A vengeful obsession becomes a deadly pursuit for the crew of the Pequod as their Captain takes them across the thrashing sea in search of a monstrous whale in this company premiere of Jake Heggie and Gene Scheer's operatic adaptation of Herman Melville's classic novel. First staged by the Dallas Opera in 2010, this stunning production, coupled with a powerful score and breathtaking visual effects, takes you deep into the heart of Captain Ahab's mania as he chases the beast over the edge of reason and into a dark and perilous insanity.
A rich and entertaining epic, discover Herman Melville's great novel anew courtesy of Opera San Jose and let the feel of this despairing tragedy and monumental staging wash over you as we follow Ahab and his men on the hunt to end all hunts.
