Jennifer Rowley & Jonathan Tetelman Lead Opera Naples’ Festival Under the Stars

By Francisco Salazar

Opera Naples’ third annual outdoor Festival Under the Stars is set to present Soprano Jennifer Rowley and tenor Jonathan Tetelman.

The festival, which will take place between March 21 to April 5 in Cambier Park, will first see Rowley open the multi-day festival with the Opera Stars Concert on March 21.

After that, Tetelman will take the stage on March 22 for “An Evening of Hope,” a charity concert presented in partnership with the Columbus Children’s Foundation and Axcelerate Medical Foundation to support children’s health. Proceeds from Tetelman’s “An Evening of Hope” will help provide equitable access to gene therapy solutions for children with rare diseases.

In a statement, Ramón Tebar, artistic and music director for Opera Naples and cultural ambassador for the City of Naples said, “We are thrilled to open this year’s festival on such a high note and continue our mission of bringing the best opera artists to Naples each year. Jennifer and Jonathan are acclaimed worldwide for their passionate and powerful performances. Audiences are in for a moving night.”

Tebar conducts the Naples Festival Orchestra on the March 21 concert and will provide piano accompaniment for the March 22 recital.
