Verdi in The Greene Space

Tuesday June 18 2013 • 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Overview

Caramoor’s Director of Opera, Will Crutchfield, joined us, along with soprano Angela Meade, tenor Noah Baetge, baritone Marco Nisticò and bass-baritone Burak Bilgili, for a sneak peek at “Verdi in Paris,” the theme of this year’s Bel Canto at Caramoor

The program included rarely-heard songs as well as duets and arias from Les vêpres siciliennes in their original French, highlighting the influence of the time Verdi spent in Paris on his music. The composer’s long association with the city yielded some of his most significant contributions to opera. Hosted by WQXR’s Naomi Lewin.
