The Martina Arroyo Foundation closes out its Master Series at the New York Opera Fest 2017 with a masterclass featuring legendary soprano Jane Eaglen.
The English dramatic soprano made a name for herself across a wide range of repertoire, most notably the operas of Wagner. She came to prominence at the Scottish Opera and then made a major career in the US at such places as the Seattle Opera (where she sang her first ever Isolde) and then the Lyric Opera of Chicago and the Metropolitan Opera, where she famously essayed “Tristan und Isolde” in a run that was recorded and released on home video. She has a number of recordings, including Strauss’ “Four Last Songs” and has appeared on numerous opera recordings ranging from Wagner to Puccini to Bellini.
This concludes a series that featured masterclasses and seminars from Fred Plotkin, soprano Sharon Sweet, mezzo Isola Jones, Opéra Royal de Wallonie-Liège general and artistic director Stefano Mazzonis and manager Ken Benson.
The event will take place at the Ida K. Lang Recital Hall at Hunter College.
The Martina Arroyo Foundation is slated to put together productions of Bizet’s “Carmen” as well as “Suor Angelica” and “Gianni Schicchi” from Puccini’s “Il Trittico.”
