Caramoor Summer Music Festival and Bel Canto at Caramoor will present a celebration of Giuseppe Verdi’s bicentennial on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
“Verdi in Paris” highlights the influence the composer’s time in Paris had on his music. The composer’s long association with the city yielded some of his most significant contributions to opera.
Will Crutchfield, Caramoor’s director of opera, will lead the Orchestra of St. Luke’s in two of the composer’s grand operas composed explicitly for the Paris Opera – “Les vêpres siciliennes” and “Don Carlos” – in their original language.
This semi-staged concert performance will be preceded by lectures and recitals in the Spanish Courtyard.
