Postponed: MIDNIGHT IN THE GARDEN will be performed when it is safe to gather again

Soprano Francesca Mondanaro returns to VPR with Midnight in the Garden, a staged program of song repertoire featuring cycles by Respighi (Deità Silvane), Alban Berg (Seven Early Songs), and songs by Rachmaninoff, Tosti and others, evoking a dark night of the soul on an unknown and winding path from dusk to dawn. Mondanaro has been recognized for her “electric…high impact singing” (Opera News), “riveting performances” (Washington Post), and ability to create “thrilling and shattering music-drama” (Parterre Box) in roles such as Norma, Abigaille, and Lady Macbeth.
