Announcing the 2015 Opera Season

Saturday July 11, 2015
La Favorite
by Gaetano Donizetti
Libretto by Alphonse Royer and Gustave Vaëz
Orchestra of St. Luke’s
Will Crutchfield
Saturday July 25, 2015
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:

Donizetti’s second Paris opera, La Favorite, is more frequently encountered in Italian translation (La Favorita). Here, singing in the original language, is the superb French mezzo-soprano, Clementine Margaine, making her New York debut at Caramoor as Leonor.

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.
