2011 marks the seventh consecutive year for Miami Lyric Opera. We are planning an exiting opera season that opened with L’Amico Fritz from Mascagni.
On 23, 25 & 26 June, we will present Verdi’s Rigoletto. All three performances will have English subtitles available. The third performance on Sunday, 26 June, is at 4 PM.
In August, Donizetti’s L’Elisir damore is our choice and Tosca from Puccini will end the season in November.
That suggests a good combination of belcanto, romanticism and verismos operas from four great Italian composers.
We have secured the services of great singers such as the marvelous Cuban Baritone Nelson Martinez, the Brazilian Soprano Daniela Carvalho, Mario Chang, whom Maestro Cardone considers an exceptional Tenor and many others, both local and national.
Orchestra conductors include Doris Lang-Kosloff, Jeff Eckstein, Beverly Coulter and a guest conductor to be announced.
