Bela Bartok's only opera, the fantastical one-act masterpiece Bluebeard's Castle, is a mysterious encounter between two characters, Duke Bluebeard and his new wife, Judith. In the castle, Judith not only discovers great riches, but also bloodstained weapons, lakes of tears and, finally, the bodies of former wives. The opera, based on Charles Perrault's chilling 1697 fairytale, was written in 1911 and first produced in 1918. New York City Opera presented the first fully staged American production in 1952. No performances 3/1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14.
