Angela Brower is thrilled to announce her upcoming appearance on a live capture of Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro from the 2015 Festspiel Baden-Baden Gala, for a future release by Deutsche Grammophon. This is Ms. Brower’s second recording on the label; the first is Così fan tutte, recorded in Baden-Baden in 2012. Both of these recordings are part of a larger series featuring seven of Mozart’s operas, led by Yannick Nezet-Seguin and initiated by Rolando Villazon, all in collaboration with the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden.
Le Nozze di Figaro will be presented in two Gala performances, on July 16 & 19 at the Festspielhaus. Ms. Brower sings the role of Cherubino alongside a star-studded cast, including Thomas Hampson as Count Almaviva, Sonya Yoncheva as the Countess, Luca Pisaroni in the title role, Christiane Karg as Susanna, Anne Sofie von Otter as Marcellina, and Rolando Villazón as Basilio. Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and the Vocalensemble Rastatt for these concerts. Please note that ticket availability is extremely limited for both performances.
