Teatro Nuovo presents a semi-staged performance of Bellini’s second opera to reach America, La Straniera (The Stranger). The late Philip Gossett called La Straniera Bellini’s “most radical opera.” It is one of the most gorgeously melodic scores in all of opera, and at the same time one of the most uncompromisingly focused on psychological drama.

Performers include soprano Christine Lyons, tenor Derrek Stark and baritone Steven LaBrie. The Teatro Nuovo Chorus and Orchestra is led by Will Crutchfield, maestro al cembalo and Jakob Lehmann, primo violin e capo d’orchestra.
