Stutzmann, Bartoli, Jaroussky
Monte Carlo Opera's concert and stage productions for the coming 2015-2016 season.
The season officially opens with the 19th November Monegasque National Day gala performance, this year of Puccini's Tosca. However a public performance of the opera is scheduled a couple of days earlier, and before that, a concert with Nathalie Stutzmann.
French contralto Nathalie Stutzmann is one of our highlights this year. She is performing tracks from her recent album Heroes From the Shadows, and is supported by her own musicians. In addition, we're particularly looking forward to the concert performance of Handel's Alcina, with French countertenor Philippe Jaroussky singing the part of heroic knight Ruggiero.
Finally, Cecila Bartoli returns to the Principality to sing the lead role in the opera Norma. The Italian mezzo-soprano has agreed to work with Monte Carlo Opera for six years. The initial output of this partnership is the creation of a baroque music ensemble called Les Musiciens du Prince, which is expected to make its first performance in spring 2016 and will accompany Bartoli on some of her tours.
