YOUNG LOVERS, FATE, AND IMPENDING DOOM
The theme of forbidden love is, indeed, timeless, and
Verona's doomed lovers
have inspired plays, novels and movies, as well as ballets and operas, for centuries.
Based on Renaissance legend (rather than Shakespeare's play), a longstanding political feud drives
the drama in Bellini's opera, adding a fascinating layer to this
masterpiece. The score's vocal fireworks are tempered by elegant and luminously beautiful duets illustrating Bellini's
passionate love affair
with the human voice.
A DIVA'S HOMECOMING
After nearly a decade of critically acclaimed performances and
returns to Lyric Opera fresh from yet another triumph as Romeo in the San Francisco Opera production of
The Capulets and the Montagues
“DiDonato’s voice is a marvel – tender and expressive in Bellini’s long-breathed melodies, mercurial in the opera’s most intricate passage work – and her ornamentation is focused and flawless.” —
. Kevin Newbury directs and Lyric Opera Artistic Director Ward Holmquisti will conduct members of The Kansas City Symphony.
