Opera Memphis may not be breaking up with the Orpheum, but the Germantown-headquartered organization has definitely decided to date other venues. O.M.'s 2009-2010 finds the opera docking at Germantown Performing Arts Center in October for a roaring 20's take on Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte, then transforming the Clark Opera Memphis Center into a performance space to house Christoph Willibald Gluck’s ORPHEUS in January, 2010. Poetically enough, the company returns to the Orpheum to end its season with Giacomo Puccini’s Madame Butterfly in April 2010.
