Teatro Nuovo presents a semi-staged performance of Tancredi, Rossini’s first ‘hit,’ which contains some of the freshest, most appealing, and most touching music he ever composed.
Tancredi will be headlined by mezzo-soprano Tamara Mumford as Tancredi (featured in The Metropolitan Opera’s production of Saariaho’s L’amour de loin), soprano Sydney Mancasola (who recently triumphed in Rigoletto at English National Opera and stars as Violetta in La traviata this summer at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis), and Santiago Ballerini as Argirio (who had a universally-praised breakout performance last summer in Il pirata at Caramoor).
Teatro Nuovo is a new organization devoted to cutting-edge interpretation of classic Italian opera presenting exciting revivals of neglected Bel Canto masterworks alongside freshly re-studied interpretations of familiar favorites with virtuoso singing at the highest level allied to an interpretation that does justice to each opera’s dramatic content, structure, and style. Teatro Nuovo also trains the rising generation of musicians in the special skills and knowledge required to bring this thrilling repertory to life. Visit www.teatronuovo.org to learn more.
