New Amsterdam Opera Announces Cast For LA FAVORITA

New Amsterdam Opera recently announced the cast for its production of Donizetti's rarely performed masterpiece La favorita:

Catherine Martin - Leonora

Steven LaBrie - Alfonso XI

Peter Scott Drackley - Fernando

Kevin Thompson - Baldassare

April Martin - Inez

Eamon Pereyra - Don Gaspar

Artistic Director Keith Chambers will conduct.

This production of LA FAVORITA will be the first production for which NAO will be using the orchestral materials and notes that have been shared with the company by Opera Orchestra of New York ("OONY") and Eve Queler. OONY last performed this masterpiece 17 years ago, in 2001. The cast for that performance included the late Dmitri Hvorostovsky as Alfonso XI. New Amsterdam Opera's production is dedicated to the memory of this beloved artist.

LA FAVORITA will be performed on One Night Only - Saturday, June 2, 2018, at 7:00 PM. NAO will be returning to The Center at West Park (86th Street at Amsterdam Avenue, NYC), which was the venue for their inaugural product of FIDELIO in 2016. Tickets will soon be available for purchase online.
