Noteworthy Frontis 217 

Spain-born, Puerto Rico-raised tenor Joel Prieto makes his LA Opera and role debuts when he sings Belmonte in Die Entführung aus dem Serail, conducted by James Conlon, playing through Feb. 19. In April, May and June, Prieto sings the same Mozart role at the Semperoper Dresden.

From Feb. 3–21, Carnegie Hall leads a New York City-wide festival, entitled La Serenissima: Music and Arts from the Venetian Republic, devoted to the culture of the Venetian Republic, which flourished independently until the late eighteenth century. Early music—including Juditha Triumphans and L’Incoronazione di Poppea—will be performed by artists such as Jordi Savall, Il Pomo d’Oro and the Venice Baroque Orchestra. Cultural partners include the Juilliard School, Columbia University and the Jewish Museum.

The Marie-Josée Kravis Prize for New Music at the New York Philharmonic, awarded every other season to honor composers for their contributions to the contemporary-music world, has been presented to Louis Andriessen. The prize includes a commission for Andriessen—whose work De Staat is performed on Feb. 3 with the St. Louis Symphony—for a new orchestral work to have its premiere in the 2018–19 season; Jaap van Zweden, in his first season as NYPO music director, will conduct.

At the end of the month, soprano Ana María Martínez is at Lyric Opera of Chicago making her role debut as Tatiana in Eugene Onegin. She sings Tchaikovsky’s adaptation of Pushkin’s story through March and subsequently travels, in April, to London’s Royal Opera for performances of Cio-Cio-San. In June, she headlines San Francisco Opera performances as Don Giovanni’s Donna Elvira.

Fauré’s seldom-performed Pénélope receives concert performances on Feb. 25 and 28 at Brussels’s Monnaie. Based on Odysseus’s journey, as written by Homer in the Odyssey, Fauré’s opera stars Anna Caterina Antonacci as Pénélope, a role she sang at Opéra National du Rhin in 2015. Michel Plasson conducts.

Sarasota Opera opens its fifty-eighth season on Feb. 11 with a performance of Madama Butterfly. The conductor is Victor DeRenzi, who the Italian government recently named a Knight of the Order of the Star of Italy for his dedication to Italian culture and music as demonstrated by Sarasota Opera’s complete Verdi Cycle, which began in 1989 and culminated in 2016. Sarasota Opera is currently the only company to have performed Verdi’s complete works, and DeRenzi is the only conductor to have conducted the entirety of Verdi’s music intended for performance.

Arizona Opera’s first-produced world premiere opens this month in Tucson and runs through Mar. 5 in Phoenix. Riders of the Purple Sage, based on the novel by Zane Grey, is set in the American Wild West and features double-cast performances by Morgan Smith and Joshua Jeremiah as Lassiter and Karin Wolverton and Laura Wilde as Jane; Joshua Dennis sings the role of Bern Venters.

On Feb. 10, Opera Philadelphia stages the company premiere of Rossini’s Tancredi, playing through Feb. 19. Corrado Rovaris conducts a cast that includes Stephanie Blythe, Brenda Rae and Michele Angelini; the production has previously appeared at Opéra de Lausanne and Teatro Municipal de Santiago. spacer
