Mark Adamo's opera version of Louisa May Alcott's 1868 novel "Little Women" isn't the first such adaptation. But it might be the most significant. Premiered by Opera Studio of Houston Grand Opera in 1998, it was such a hit that the company revived it as a main-stage production in 2000. Opera Pacific has picked it to kick off its new American Opera series. It opens Saturday and runs through May 20 at the Irvine Barclay Theatre.

Though he'd be the first to say it's been a team effort, conductor John DeMain is clearly emerging as the main force driving Orange County's reborn Opera Pacific. Staging Mark Adamo's "Little Women" this week at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, for instance, represents his vision for a new American opera series. Presenting Strauss' demanding "Der Rosenkavalier" last month signaled his claim that the company has come of age and is ready for the big time.
