Noteworthy Frontis 717 

❶ This month, Maria Natale sings Violetta in a new Traviata at Opera Maine (formerly PORTopera), paced by OM’s newly named principal conductor, Stephen Lord. Opera Maine artistic director Dona D. Vaughn directs the staging at Portland’s Merrill Auditorium (July 26, 28).

❷ On July 9, the centennial of Ella Fitzgerald will be celebrated with a concert at Tanglewood Music Center. The tribute to the great jazz singer, who died in 1996, will feature Tanglewood Music Center vocal fellows.

❸  Jonas Kaufmann returns to the Munich Festival this month for performances as Don Alvaro in La Forza del Destino (July 19, 23) and the title role in Andrea Chénier (July 28, 31). The tenor’s leading lady in both operas will be Anja Harteros. They will be paced by Asher Fisch (Forza) and Omer Meir Wellber (Chénier).

❹  Elza van den Heever takes on the title role in David Alden’s staging of Alcina for Santa Fe Opera this summer. The Handel masterwork, which opens on July 29 and runs through August 23, will be led by SFO’s chief conductor, Harry Bicket. The South African soprano returns to the Met in March 2018 as Chrysothemis in Elektra. 

❺ On July 25, The Young People’s Chorus of New York City will appear in the special opening-night presentation of the 2017 Mostly Mozart Festival. The chorus joins maestro Louis Langrée, pianist Kit Armstrong and the Concert Chorale of New York for “The Singing Heart,” a program that will combine Mozart’s 1782 “Haffner” symphony with a selection of folk songs and spirituals from the same era. spacer
