The Chorale will feature the extraordinary soprano Angela Meade in the title role of Beatrice di Tenda, along with soloists Jamie Barton, Michael Spyres and Nicholas Pallesen. Set in 15th century Milan and based on a historical figure, the opera tells of the tormented but saintly wife of the Duke of Milan, falsely accused of adultery by the scorned lover of one of her admirers and sentenced to death by her husband. Beatrice di Tenda is characterized by ravishing melodies and exciting finales. It premiered in 1833 and was famously revived in 1961 by Joan Sutherland and Marilyn Horne, Music Director James Bagwell conducts The Collegiate Chorale and American Symphony Orchestra in this gala concert evening.
