I have chosen these films to help you get acquainted with the singers next season at the San Francisco Opera.
Stoyanova who will sing Amelia
Radvanovsky who will sing her Norma.
De Niese will sing Partenope
Deshayes will sing Angiolina in her very contralto voice.
Haroutounian will sing Tosca.
Michael Fabiano, who recently won the Richard Tucker prize, will sing Rodolfo. For my ears he is one of the stars of the future.
Nadine Serra will sing the Contessa in Figaro and Musetta in La Boheme. This film is from her last summer appearance in the Neue Stimmen vocal competition. You can tell she has been busy.
Luca Pisaroni. Usually he is Figaro, but in our production he will sing the Count.
And here is the recently added Mimi of Alexia Voulgaridou. She is miked because this is outdoors in Bregenz 2002.
Here's something more recent. This makes two of "Je veux vivre."
I just thought you should have an idea. This is all very top shelf.
