For Rossini’s Opera “La Cenerentola” (Cinderella) a total of 8 attended and enjoyed Houston Grand Opera Chorus and Houston Symphony. It was pleasing to welcome back Gwen and Trevor who, over the last 6 months were unable to attend due to health issues.
Decca, Universal Music and Deutsche Grammophon are celebrating 50 years of recordings with Luciano Pavarotti (now deceased) and Director Ron Howard has produced a film “Pavarotti the Voice, the Man, the Drama, the Legend” being released in Cinemas October 24 (I am not sure if B.C & C will have it on their list) therefore our Opera on 15th October will be Verdi’s ”Rigoletto” with Pavarotti as the Duke of Mantova, Louis Quilico as the hunchback Rigoletto and Christine Eda-Pierre as Rigoletto’s daughter Gilda, recorded live at the Metropolitan December 1981. Remember it was singing the role of Gilda that Nellie Melba made her opera debut all those years ago.
