ODYSSEY OPERA This exploratory company, which has lain low since its inaugural performance of Wagner’s “Rienzi” last fall, returns with more seldom-spotted repertoire: Verdi’s early opera “Un giorno di regno” (June 11 and 13) and a double bill devoted to Mascagni’s “Zanetto” and Wolf-Ferrari’s “Il segreto di susanna” (June 12 and 14). Gil Rose conducts all three works, Joshua Major directs the Verdi, and Daniel Gidron oversees the double bill. Boston University Theatre, 264 Huntington Ave. 617-933-8600, www.odysseyopera.org
