Topic - Angela Meade
Two American sopranos _ one established, one up-and-coming _ showed off their considerable talents in roles new to them at the Washington National Opera over the weekend.
Angela Meade, a rising star at the Metropolitan Opera, rose a notch higher as she stepped into one of the touchstone roles of the soprano repertory, Leonora in Verdi's "Il Trovatore."
Is there such a thing as too much beauty _ as a criticism?
Soprano Angela Meade has won the Beverly Sills Artist Award for young singers.
On paper, it reads like the operatic equivalent of Mission Impossible: Take over the taxing title role of Donizetti's "Anna Bolena" right after Russian superstar Anna Netrebko has completed a run of seven sold-out performances.
In the long downward runs that Anna sings in the ensemble that ends Act 1, and again in the closing scene, Meade articulated each note with rare precision.
