La Donna del Lago
This will be Joyce DiDonato's American debut in the part of Elena, which she has already sung to great acclaim in Europe (at La Scala, the Paris Opéra, and Covent Garden). As always, Santa Fe has provided for her a host of fine Rossini singers, especially Lawrence Brownlee as the King of Scotland, and this promises to be a blockbuster event. The rest of the season is also very fine, involving as it does, La Grande Duchesse of Offenbach, Le Nozze di Figaro of Mozart, Verdi's La Traviata, and a new opera by Theodore Morrison on the life of Oscar Wilde, called Oscar. Remember that this year marks the 200th anniversary of the births of both Verdi and Wagner.
La Donna del Lago will play on July 13, 17, and 26 at 8:30 PM, and August 1, 6, and 14 at 8 PM. For more information, please visit santafeopera.org.
