Teatro Nuovo: Tancredi
Center Series
Teatro Nuovo: Tancredi

July 28 & August 3

Opera

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: Medea in Corinto

July 29 & August 4

Opera

Teatro Nuovo presents a semi-staged performance of Giovanni Simone Mayr's Medea in Corinto. Mayr, a master awaiting rediscovery, was the teacher and lifelong friend of Donizetti and the most important link between Mozart and Rossini. The opera originally starred Rossini's future wife, Isabella Colbran, and then became a favorite role of Giuditta Pasta, the first Norma and Anna Bolena, who kept the opera in repertory up to about 1840.  
Teatro Nuovo: Masterclass with Jennifer Larmore

July 30, 7:30 pm

Opera

Join us to observe as one of the lead lights of the Bel Canto revival works with Teatro Nuovo singers. Audiences from the Met to Covent Garden to La Scala have reveled in Jennifer Larmore's interpretations, and Bel Canto at Caramoor fans will remember her exciting appearances there as Eboli and Mère Marie. Now she is with us to help show the next generation how it's done.
Teatro Nuovo: Parlami D’Amore

July 31, 7:30 pm

Opera

In the 20th century, Bel Canto migrated to Italian popular song, with favorites made immortal by singers like Tito Schipa, Carlo Buti, Luciano Pavarotti and Andrea Bocelli. Hear the Young Artists of Teatro Nuovo's Bel Canto Program perform some of the world's most beloved Italian songs.
Teatro Nuovo: Oldest Voices, Newest Voices

Teatro Nuovo: Tancredi Rifatto

August 5, 4:00 pm

Classical, Opera

In Rossini's time, when an opera was re-mounted in a new city, the composer would write some new music for it. Over time, Rossini wrote alternate pieces for practically half the score. Tancredi rifatto (Tancredi re-made) is a different score, with some of Rossini's best music, most of it unknown even to Rossini fans.
