Noteworthy Month 417 

⓵ April 28 marks opening night of the inaugural Vancouver Opera Festival. The festival will feature concerts, art exhibitions and three staged operas, the first of which is Verdi’s Otello, starring Clifton Forbis as Otello, Gregory Dahl as Iago and Vancouver-raised soprano Erin Wall as Desdemona. Also in play, through May 18, are the company premiere of Dead Man Walking, with Daniel Okulitch and J’Nai Bridges, and a new contemporary-setting production, by Rachel Peake, of Le Nozze di Figaro.

⓶ Soprano Maria Agresta appears in a new production of Il Trovatore at Opéra de Monte Carlo from April 21–30. After singing Leonora, she travels to London for a different Verdi role in another new production: in June and July, Agresta is Desdemona in Keith Warner’s staging of Otello at Covent Garden, under Antonio Pappano’s baton and opposite Jonas Kaufmann as the title Moor.

⓷ Deutsche Oper Berlin revives Götz Friedrich’s Ring cycle this month, from April 1–9 and April 13–17. Donald Runnicles conducts Derek Welton as Wotan (Das Rheingold); Brandon Jovanovich as Siegmund, Eva-Maria Westbroek as Sieglinde and Evelyn Herlitzius as Brünnhilde (Die Walküre); Stefan Vinke as Siegfried (Siegfried); and Vinke as Siegfried and Herlitzius as Brünnhilde (Götterdämmerung). 

⓸ On April 7, Sony releases New York Philharmonic—175th Anniversary Edition, a sixty-five-disc compilation of the NY Phil’s highlight recordings from 1917 to 1995. The box set, featuring twenty recordings available on CD for the first time, focuses on symphonic works led by former music directors, including Stransky, Bernstein and Toscanini. 

⓹ “Monteverdi 450,” an expansive tour of Monteverdi’s three surviving operas and his Vespers, begins on April 10 in Aix-en-Provence and travels to Bristol, England, on April 12. John Eliot Gardiner conducts the nine-country, seven-month tour, culminating in performances of L’Orfeo, Il Ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria and L’Incoronazione di Poppea in Chicago and New York in October. Tour dates are still being added; more information can be found online at monteverdi.co.uk. spacer
