|Bus departs at 7:15 PM to take you to the Santa Fe Opera for tonight's performance of Rossin's "La Donna del Lago."|
The brooding hills of Scotland have held a special attraction for composers starting with Rossini, whose "La Donna del Lago" was the first opera to be based on a novel by Sir Walter Scott. This dramatic tale remains Scott's best-plotted love story, and Rossini's most romantic opera. The incomparable Joyce DiDonato sings the title role, Elena. Acclaimed at the Paris Opera and La Scala, DiDonato has become today's foremost interpreter of this spectacular role. The cast also features two stellar coloratura tenors, Lawrence Brownlee and Rene Barbera, in the high-flying roles of Uberto and Rodrigo. Daniela Barcellona sings the role of Malcolm. Stephen Lord returns to lead this Santa Fe debut.
