Embarrassment of Riches

Ensemble casts are an amazing thing. They don’t occur naturally or frequently in this opera jet age, rife with double- and triple-cast productions and box office stars flying in at the last minute. This cast of 17 soloists and 11 supporting singers in Rossini’s Journey to Reims is a rare and wonderful phenomenon. All the more so, as these young professionals are creating relationships that will last through their careers. (I used to sense this intuitively, but Facebook has now proven to me that Wolf Trap friendships last decades:))

Enjoy the photos below, and get your tickets to revel (dare I say “wallow”) in the chemistry that these singers will create onstage starting June 21.2013-06-08 14.13.12-2
