Virginia Opera: La Traviata
To close this stunning season of stylistic highlights, Virginia Opera premieres [co-produced with, Des Moines Metro Opera] a brand new, glittering and glamorous traditional staging of La Traviata directed by Virginia Opera audience favorite, Lillian Groag, who stunned audiences last Spring with a vibrant and stylish Marriage of Figaro – Ms. Groag has worked with Virginia Opera for over 20 years and the tradition continues with this brand-new La Traviata. Conducted by Andrew Bisantz, in his Virginia Opera debut, this exciting American conductor enjoys a significant opera career and continues the Virginia Opera tradition of presenting major new talent. The cast includes Mexican-American soprano Cecilia Violetta López as the doomed leading lady, courtesan Violetta Valéry, whom The Washington Times praised for her “alluring voice and incredible range.” Cuban-American tenor, Rolando Sanz, portrays Alfredo Germont, the man who tries to melt Violetta’s cold heart through the power of love, reprising the role that recently won him acclaim with The Florentine Opera. Internationally acclaimed baritone, Malcolm MacKenzie, who has appeared at The Metropolitan Opera and other leading opera houses in the world, makes his Virginia Opera debut as Giorgio Germont, Alfredo’s father. In his Glimmerglass Opera portrayal of Germont, Opera News described him as “a stentorian Germont, singing with a steely beauty that matched the character’s resolve.”A classic Italian opera composed by one of the masters of the art form – Giuseppe Verdi – La Traviata is the most performed opera in the world today and remains an audience favorite on our stages since the inaugural season when it was first performed in 1975. Set in decadent mid-1800’s Paris, the story tells of a lovely courtesan who falls in love with a man she cannot have. Sung in Italian with English Supertitles.

Opera Roanoke: Rossini’s Cinderella
Opera Roanoke will conclude its “Comedy Tonight” season with a new fully-staged production of Rossini’s classic musical comedy, La Cenerentola (Cinderella). Living the life of a servant, Cinderella waits hand and foot on her cruel, yet rather silly, stepsisters and wicked and pompous stepfather Don Magni?co. A fateful visit by a beggar who is actually Alidoro, Prince Ramiro’s tutor, in disguise, sets in motion a series of comedic events that enable the magnanimous Cinderella to break free from repression. General and Artistic Director Scott Williamson leads the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra (RSO) and a cast that will bedazzle audiences with the virtuosity of the bel canto style. Opera Roanoke welcomes, in their Roanoke debuts, Amanda Crider as Cinderella, Jonathan Blalock as Prince Ramiro and Levi Hernandez as Dandini. Opera Roanoke favorite Angela Theis returns to Roanoke as stepsister Clorinda. Single tickets ($25 - $100) are available now by calling the Jefferson Center box office at (540) 345-2550.

Throughout the course of his career as pianist, orchestral soloist, chamber player, and teacher, Edmund Battersby has earned the highest praise from his audiences, critics, and colleagues alike.

TENEbrae: Concerto Delle Donne
Concerto delle donne was a group of professional female singers who became famous during the late Italian Renaissance in the Ferrara court. Known for their artistry and praised as virtuose, they offered private, informal performances in courtly settings known as “secret music” (musica secreta) for members of the court’s inner circle and important visitors. Their signature style was florid and filled with ornaments, and they inspired composers and musicians across Italy! Concerto delle donne revolutionized the role of women in professional music, continuing a tradition that began in the Este court and flourished in the powerful Medici and Orsini courts. Sopranos In addition to inspiring male composers such as Luigi Rossi, Domenico Mazzocchi, Claudio Monteverdi to write for what became known as “the three ladies”, women were also writing for them! Barbara Strozzi, Francesca Caccini, and Antonia Bembo along with a group of fantastically creative nuns contributed greatly to the tradition! TENET presents our own three ladies Jolle Greenleaf, Molly Quinn and Virginia Warnken in a project dedicated to recreating the feminine vocal trio in Concerto delle donne in a program of solos, duets and trios that show off the 17th century Italian vocal style in close harmonies.
