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."
New York's Caramoor music festival plans to present a pair of Verdi rarities this summer to mark 200 years since the composer's birth.
Never mind the "fiscal cliff," here's what's at the top of the mountainous schedule of music and arts events in store for Washingtonians and visitors this spring.
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.
