Letters of Love and Subterfuge Concert
Whether it be by letter, telegraph, email, or text, written communication is one of the perpetual glories and frustrations of humanity, and it is no different in opera. Letters of Love and Subterfuge is an evening focusing on letters and documents in opera. The program features both favorite artists from past productions and new voices performing a wide-ranging array of works from both opera and musical theater, including The Consul, Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music, Andrea Chenier, Falstaff, Il barbiere di siviglia, and more. Several of the artists from Count Ory do double-duty in the programs second half, Act II from Mozarts Le nozze di Figaro, performed in the original Italian.
Featuring sopranos Teaira Burge, Emily Cox, Claire DiVizio, Jessie Lyons, Rachael Long, Mary Lutz-Govertsen, and Elizabeth Rudolph; mezzo-sopranos Brittany Jeffries, Jori Jennings, Denise Knowlton, Angela Torres, and Pamela Torrey; countertenor Bruno Rivera; tenors Alex Carey, Stan DeCwikiel, Ryan Frenk, and Brian Pember; baritones Noah Gartner, Stephen Hobe, Nathan James Kistler, and Robert Potsic; and bass Kota Terrace, this will prove to be a concert to remember, with all the music delivered in the original languages. The arias and ensembles will be presented lightly staged, as in the context of a opera scenes concert, and the Le Nozze section will be fully staged and conducted by musical director Sarah Jenks.
