Online highlights recital available to season ticket holders from October 16–November 6, 2020. Subscriptions to our 2021 Spring Season are on sale and include this program and our full 2020 virtual fall season.
Feel a husband’s jealousy, a wife’s betrayal, and a clown’s love and sadness in this highlights recital of Leoncavallo’s beloved tale. Gregory Kunde, Michael Mayes, Vanessa Goikoetxea, and Will Liverman—artists originally scheduled to perform in this August double bill are excited to be part of this presentation that was filmed in locations from Seattle to Spain.
[Kunde's] triumph is undeiable, but rather a tribute to the opera, which can thus be enjoyed without a single note being missed or a single transition squandered.”
Soprano Vanessa Golkoetxea epitomized her role in every movement and with fine expressive singing.”
[Liverman's] baritone is one of sheer beautiy.”
Mr. Mayes not only gifted us with the powerful beauty of his burnished instrument, but he also made my jaw drop.”
