June issue, out now!
In the June issue of Opera Now, we meet the new and visionary artistic team at the Teatro di San Carlo in Naples who are transforming the fortunes of one of the world’s oldest and most illustrious opera houses.
Elsewhere, in a special report, we explore how opera in Spain is emerging with new vigour as the pandemic recedes and a spirit of co-operation and collaboration grows between the nation’s leading theatres.
Plus, celebrating the career of operatic megastar Dame Clara Butt 150 years after her birth; soprano Amanda Echalaz discusses the challenges of La Gioconda as she prepares for her role debut as the heroine of Ponchielli’s emotionally searing masterpiece at Grange Park Opera; Jack Furness makes his directing debut at Garsington Opera with a staging of Dvorák’s heartrendingly beautiful operatic masterpiece Rusalka; remembering composers Harrison Birtwistle and Philippe Boesmans; and opera director John Copley explores his Favourite Things.
