I am very happy to be making my first appearance at Carnegie Hall this Sunday, January 30 at 2PM. I will sing the role of La Chef de la Flotte with the American Symphony Orchestra in a concert performance of the rarely performed opera Bérénice, by Albéric Magnard.
This dramatic tour de force, considered by many to be the best of the French Wagnerian operas, tells of the dramatic love affair between the Queen of Judea and Titus, heir to the Roman Empire. It explores contrasts between East and West, romantic and classic, female and male.
Conductor’s Notes – Maestro Leon Botstein explains it all in special Q&A sessions starting one hour before each concert in Stern Auditorium. Free for all ticket holders.
Thae cast and chorus sound fantastic! Come on out.
