New Amsterdam Opera Presents

La Favorita

June 2, 7:00pm

Gaetano Donizetti, Composer
Alphonse Royer and Gustave Vaëz, Librettists


New Amsterdam Opera is excited to be presenting Donizetti’s rarely heard masterpiece La favorita. This will be the first production for which NAO will use the orchestral materials that Opera Orchestra of New York generously shared with us.

OONY last performed this beautiful opera in 2001 with a cast that included Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky as King Alphonso XI. New Amsterdam Opera’s production of La favorita is dedicated to the memory of this beloved artist. We are pleased to present a cast that exemplifies NAO’s objective of featuring Voices That Deserve To Be Heard, whether they are established professionals or emerging young artists.
