Gounod's Sapho

DESCRIPTION

Unusual for its time, Gounod's first opera rejected traditional elements of French grand opera in favor of a deeply psychological drama. Sapho centers around intense, competing love affairs - developing within the context of the ancient Greek Olympics - all while the tantalizing possibility of a political coup bubbles just beneath the surface. Internationally renowned mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey will return to WCO in the title role, with four acclaimed emerging artists making their WCO debuts: tenor Addison Marlor as Phaon, soprano Amina Edris as Glycère, bass-baritone Musa Ngqungwana as Pythéas, and baritone Brian Vu as Alcée.
