A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, opera a cappella now available at Albany Records

Saturday, April 27, 2024


Pauline looks back on her St. Petersburg debut where 
she first meets Ivan Turgenev.

NOTES ON VIARDOT premieres tonight at the University of South Dakota-Vermillion. It has been a long and gratifying journey! Their producer/director Tracelyn Gesteland has made it a smooth and beautiful ride. The music department and college of fine arts has been supportive of this chance for the opera program to stretch. I owe Dr. Gesteland BIG for suggesting the idea of an opera about Pauline and this is paying off in the amount of interest that the show has gotten, both in the workshops at Florida Grand Opera, Taos Opera Institute, and Missouri State University, and in the interest in future productions, including those already confirmed at Arizona State University and Baylor University. 

My hope is that this will create a wave of productions for Viardot's already popular CENDRILLON and other pieces, such as THE LAST SORCERER
