New Jersey State Opera Remembers Long-Time Suppoter and Good Friend Licia Albanese
From The New York Times: Licia Albanese, an Italian-born soprano whose veneration by audiences worldwide was copious even by the standards of operatic adulation, died on Friday at her home in Manhattan. She was 105.
2014 Operlogue Series
Our Operlogue Series begins again this week and will run the third Thursday of every month through June. We will take a break in July and August and begin again in September. I promised you Puccini and that is what you will be getting for the next six sessions. Since he wrote such gorgeous melodies I have decided to take you through a musical study of his operas in the order they were written, using excerpts from actual performances, audio tapes, vintage and not so vintage recordings and hopefully live performances here in the auditorium.
