Da Ponte’s Oratorio: A Concert for New York


Premiering Friday, Nov. 5 at 9 p.m.

Italian opera company Teatro Lirico di Cagliari performs the restaged concert, lost to history for almost 200 years. Through the meticulous research of Basilica Music Director Lamenzo and Italian musicologist Zimei, the program recreates as closely as possible what was heard in 1826. The 2018 concert features the music of Cimarosa and Zingarelli along with that of Haydn, Handel and Arne. Maestro Donato Renzetti conducts, with performances by sopranos Francesca Dotto and Salome Jicia, tenor Patrick Kabongo, and baritones Pier Luigi Dilengite and Daniele Terenzi.
