Announcing the 2015 Opera Season

Dialogues des Carmélites
by Francis Poulenc
Orchestra of St. Luke’s
Will Crutchfield


Will Crutchfield, Caramoor’s Director of Opera, has this to say about the 2015 operas:

Otello is a natural choice, because it is a pinnacle of the Bel Canto repertory and we have the opportunity to present the world’s  leading exponent of the title role today, Caramoor favorite, tenor Michael Spyres.

Dialogues des Carmélites might seem a less likely title for us – it is not, strictly speaking, a Bel Canto opera at all. But it is a 20th-century opera for Bel Canto voices, and we have assembled an all-star cast of returning Caramoor artists, including the role debut of contralto Ewa Podleś in the unforgettable part of the Old Prioress.
