Chamber Music Sedona’s Opera Saturday

Chamber Music Sedona continues its 30th Anniversary season with a December Triple-Header and the award-winning series: The Met: Live in HD. Live simulcasts from the Metropolitan Opera in New York City will be broadcast at 11am on December 8th and December 15th at the Sedona Performing Arts Center, 995 Upper Red Rock Loop Road, Sedona.

December 8th, Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera. Director David Alden’s dreamlike setting provides a compelling backdrop for this dramatic story of jealousy and vengeance. Marcelo Álvarez stars as the conflicted king; Sondra Radvanovsky is Amelia, the object of his secret passion; and Dmitri Hvorostovsky is her suspicious husband. Kathleen Kim is the page Oscar, and Stephanie Blythe sings the role of the fortune-teller Ulrica. Fabio Luisi conducts.

 

December 15th is Verdi’s Aida. The Met’s unforgettable production of Verdi’s ancient Egyptian drama stars Liudmyla Monastyrska as the enslaved Ethiopian princess caught in a love triangle with the heroic Radamès, played by Roberto Alagna, and the proud Egyptian princess Amneris, sung by Olga Borodina. Fabio Luisi conducts.

 

A unique feature of the Sedona series is the pre-opera “Curtain Raiser” presented from 9:45-10:25 am. Featured speakers include Edward Ingraham December 1, Russell Fox December 8th, and Thomas Cleman December 15th. Readers may view more about the operas at www.metoperafamily.org.
