Soprano Angela Meade, a graduate of Philadelphia's Academy of Vocal Arts, sings the title role in LUCREZIA BORGIA.

Join us to hear Gaetano Donizetti's bel canto masterpiece, Lucrezia Borgia, recorded live in July, 2014 at The Caramoor Summer Music Festival. Director of Opera Will Crutchfield leads the Orchestra of St. Luke's and a stellar cast, including acclaimed soprano Angela Meade in her highly anticipated debut in the title role, Tamara Mumford as Maffio Orsini, Michele Angelini as Gennaro, and Christophoros Stamboglis as Duke Alfonso.

Reviewing Ms. Meade's breakout role debut as Norma at Caramoor in 2010, The New York Times exclaimed "From the first lines of Norma's entrance...Ms. Meade sounded in complete control of the role." She has gone on to display that control in acclaimed Norma performances at the Metropolitan Opera, the Washington National Opera, and elsewhere. Now she returns to Caramoor to introduce her interpretation of another iconic bel canto heroine. Saturday, November 8, 1 to 3:30 pm on WRTI.
