Seattle Opera's 2008-09 Season will feature Robert Lepage's staging of Bartók's Bluebeard's Castle and Schoenberg's Erwartung, the double-bill he first premiered with the Canadian Opera Company in 1992. This production pairing is turning out to be in high demand as a rental. The Montreal Opera already presented this production in April 2004 and the Opéra de Québec has scheduled it in October 2008 to close out Quebec City's 400th anniversary. Seattle Opera's offering in February and March 2009 is the latest.
