Experience the joys and tragedies of life in a small Italian village in this online program featuring highlights from Pietro Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana. Many of the artists originally scheduled to perform in the August double bill are thrilled to participate in this presentation. Gregory Kunde, Sarah Larsen, Alexandra Lo Bianco, and Nerys Jones are featured singers with an intoruduction by Dramaturg Jonathan Dean.
“[Kunde’s] triumph is undeniable, but rather a tribute to the opera, which can thus be enjoyed without a single note being missed or a single transition squandered.”
Alexandra LoBianco, a soprano with dramatic flair and clarion power throughout her range.”
