Kelley O'Connor & Myra Huang Recital
Tickets for this concert are currently only available as part of a subscription series. Individual tickets go on sale in February 2024.
Celebrated mezzo-soprano Kelley O’Connor returns to the Festival with pianist Myra Huang for a performance featuring complex and dramatic heroines. Grieg’s song cycle Haugtussa (The Mountain Maid) incorporates Norwegian folk melodies into its story of the young shepherd girl Veslemøy who is granted psychic powers. Then the princess Arianna in Haydn’s captivating cantata Arianna a Naxos undergoes the whole range of human emotion, from grief to wrath, to desperate love. Songs of Korngold bring this heart-rending recital to a close.
