WASHINGTON NATIONAL CATHEDRAL
SOPRANO SOLOIST / MAY 2020
Combining the forces of French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, the Post Classical Ensemble and Cathedra, we invite you to explore and celebrate what happens when Franz Joseph Haydn works on a larger canvass. His extraordinary piano concerto exhibits his mastery of orchestral color and creativity, and his “Lord Nelson” Mass – probably the finest of his Mass settings – offers a sense of the works that flowed from the patronage of the church.
Angel Gil-Ordóñez, Conductor

WASHINGTON NATIONAL OPERA
SOLOIST AND FEATURED DANCER / MAY 2018
War! Earthquakes! Slavery! Disease! Very bad things happen to very good people (and plenty of bad ones too) as a terrific ensemble cast quick-change their way through dozens of colorful characters, performing a witty and effervescent score that includes such classic tunes as "The Best of All Possible Worlds," "Make Our Garden Grow," and "Glitter and Be Gay." Through all its hysterical scouring of 18th-century wickedness and woe, WNO's first-ever production of Candide still finds a way to move and inspire with life-affirming lessons that, surprisingly, ring just as true today.
Nicole Paiement, Conductor
Francesca Zambello, Director
Production from The Glimmerglass Festival
