Opera Now - May 2023
In the May issue of Opera Now we meet soprano Mary Bevan as she takes on the role of Euridice in Teatro La Fenice’s production of Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice. Establishing herself as one of the world’s finest sopranos, we explore the secret to her authenticity, how she’s found her own unique voice and the relationship with her family as they go on record as the Bevan Family Consort.
Also in the issue, mezzo Jennifer Johnston writes a letter to her daughter about body image in opera, why was Britten’s royal opera Gloriana perceived as such a failure, Geneva’s Opera House glistens in a new contemporary opera by Christian Jost and Anna Pirozzi prepares for Medea in Greece. Plus, we review ENO’s The Rhinegold, The Met Opera’s production of Lohengrin, Il Triccio from Scottish Opera and more.
