Caramoor Presents Five Summer Offerings
This summer marks the 20th anniversary season of the "Bel Canto at Caramoor" series. To celebrate this milestone, Caramoor is thrilled to present five offerings, two of which showcase the exceptional artistry of 2017 Artist in-Residence Angela Meade.
Hailed as "the most talked-about soprano of her generation" (Opera News), Meade first catapulted to prominence at Caramoor. She returns to star in this year's operatic centerpiece - a semi-staged production of Bellini's Il pirata (July 8), in which she makes her eagerly anticipated role debut - and the opening-night gala concert, "A Night of Italian Opera" (June 17). To round out the anniversary offerings, members of Caramoor's celebrated Bel Canto Young Artists' program present a duo of al fresco events in the Spanish Courtyard: a program of miniatures for soloists and ensemble that shed light on "The Intimate Bellini" (July 13), and the American premiere of Manuel García's 1830-31 chamber opera Un avvertimento ai gelosi ("A warning to the jealous")(June 29). There will also be a performance of Rossini's Petite messe solennelle, an extended missa solemnis, with the original orchestration, that the composer called "the last sin of my old age" (July 23).
