Moby-Dick was commissioned by The Dallas Opera to commemorate their inaugural season in the Winspear Opera House. The opera has also been produced by San Francisco Opera, San Diego Opera, State Opera of South Australia and Calgary Opera. In addition, Moby-Dick is scheduled to be performed at Washington National Opera in February/March 2014.

Central City Opera's 2014 Festival includes Jake Heggie's Dead Man Walking. Our 2010 production Three Decembers was also written by Heggie & Scheer. Additionally, Gene Scheer has performed numerous times with Central City Opera, most recently as Cap'n Andy in Show Boat.
