Teatro Nuovo: Tancredi
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).
This event is part of Teatro Nuovo’s “The Dawn of Romantic Opera” Bel Canto Festival at Purchase College. This exciting new ensemble will present 19th-century opera with period instruments, in a unique style of semi-staging that brings each opera to full dramatic life in concert format.
