Zingoni has been sent back to Bakersfield -again.
And also Morency! Which leaves fight crazy fans to watch the old familiars: Almond, Bagnall, Kassian, with an occasional outburst by Kalus?
Ortmeyer stays-a good thing, I think.
Well, do I scent another stint for spunky Brock McBride coming?
Opera in the Heights is putting on the Spanish Inquisition.
The French or the Italian language version, which ever it is it will have surtitles.
So no fear you won't 'get it'...lots of great singing to be expected, milling crowds, lonely solos (Don Carlo)
a love affair gone wrong.
Not because she loves another, but because she has to marry that one for dynastic reasons.
Envy, and a jealous woman scorned creates havoc in mezza voce.
Male bonding, he'll die for the other. (Rodrigo and Don Carlo)
Support of religious freedom. And redemption or not?
The ending is enigmatic!
What more can an opera offer.
Quite a modern tale, all said, plus set to absolutely rousing music.
FYI: Opera in the Heights performances are set for last weekend in January 1/27-29)
and first weekend in February 2/3-5.
More on this after tomorrow night when I got to see the encore of this year's Met Don Carlo.
