Half full

Opera Orchestra of New York has announced their 2012-2013 season of only two performances. Andrea Chenier will be performed Sunday, January 6 at 4:00 pm with Roberto Alagna, George Petean, Renata (“The Forbidden Diva”) Lamanda, Rosalind Elias, Ronald Naldi and David Petershal Pershall; Alberto Veronesi conducts.  

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: Despite her name, La Lamanda is not, in fact, a soprano, which means that in the cast listing above, there is no Maddalena indicated. La Cieca has learned that this role will be taken by remains TBA since Martina Serafin in has canceled this engagement, which would have been her NYC opera debut.

Then, on Monday April 8 at 7:30 pm, comes the season closer, I Lombardi alla prima crociata with Angela Meade, Michael Fabiano, Brandon Cedel and Adam Bonanni. Eve Queler conducts. Both operas will be given at Avery Fisher Hall.
