The Golden Ticket
The Golden Ticket, American Lyric Theater's first opera commission - based on Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - is being produced for the third time this winter. The Golden Ticket received its world premiere at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis in 2010, followed by its European premiere at Ireland's Wexford Festival. This month, ALT is partnering with The Atlanta Opera to present The Golden Ticket and is recording the performances for release on CD later this year.
The recording will featuring many of the singers who premiered their roles at OTSL, including Daniel Okulitch as Willy Wonka, as well as many artists who first created their roles in ALT's New York City workshops. We are also very excited to announce that the recording will be conducted by none other than the composer himself, Peter Ash
