Opera Night with Paul Herriott

Saturday July 11th - Mozart's La Clemenza di Tito featuring Joyce DiDonato, Rolando Villazón and Tara Erraught

This recent Deutsche Grammophon recording of La Clemenza di Tito, Mozart’s opera about the benevolent Emperor Titus who forgives an assassination attempt, features Joyce DiDonato as Sesto, Rolando Villazón as Tito, Marina Rebeka as Vitellia, Tara Erraught (pictured) as Annio, Regula Mühlemann as Servilia and Adam Plachetka is Publio.The Chamber Orchestra of Europe and the RIAS Kammerchor is conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin.


Saturday July 18th - Lurline by William Vincent Wallace 

The Lorelei Rock in the Rhine River on which the siren Lurline played her enchanting harp to lure fishermen to a watery grave is the setting for Lurline, heard tonight in a 2010 recording of a performing edition by Richard Bonynge. Victorian theatre critics declared it an outright success and the opera played for a substantial number of performances, making it a landmark production. It was even thought that Wallace's melodious score was even richer than that of his earlier opera, Maritana. Sally Silver is the seductive siren, Richard Lewis a love interest, David Soar is the imposing Rhine King, and Roderick Earle’s sings the characterful gnome Zelieck. Richard Bonygne conducts the Victorian Opera Chorus and Orchestra.
