Doomed queen…tour-de-force drama! Anne Boleyn may be Queen of England, but she doesn't stand a chance. Henry VIII wants her gone — with Jane Seymour taking her place on the throne and in his bed. And Henry's minions do the dirty work, finding "proof" of Anne's infidelities.
Join us to hear Gaetano Donizetti's bel canto masterpiece, Lucrezia Borgia, recorded live in July, 2014 at The Caramoor Summer Music Festival. Director of Opera Will Crutchfield leads the Orchestra of St. Luke's and a stellar cast, including acclaimed soprano Angela Meadein her highly anticipated debut in the title role, Tamara Mumford as Maffio Orsini, Michele Angelini as Gennaro, and Christophoros Stamboglis as Duke Alfonso.
Join us this Saturday, March 31st at 1 pm for the Metropolitan Opera's production of L'Elisir d'Amore. Donizetti’s melodic classic is well served by a quartet of bel canto stars: Juan Diego Flórez and Diana Damrau are the unlikely lovers, Mariusz Kwiecien the vainglorious sergeant, and Alessandro Corbelli the dispenser of the elixir.
