Tuesday at 7:00 PM, WQXR’s Operavore and Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts offer a sneak peek at “Verdi in Paris,” the theme of this year’s Bel Canto at Caramoor. Maestro Will Crutchfield (not pictured) will present soprano Angela Meade, tenor Noah Baetge and baritone Marco Nisticò in a program of songs and arias from Les vêpres siciliennes.

    Do you think James Levine will be listening? How long will we have to put up with those inadequate Italian translations of Vêpres and Don Carlos at the Met? Of course, he also advocates inadequate versions of Carmen and Hoffmann, so why should he care about authenticity in Verdi?

    A postscript:

    Those translations of Verdi’s French operas are so poor they make even Somma’s libretto for Ballo seem literate. That’s the text with the famous lines:

    Cadavere domani
    Sarai se qui rimani.
