Noteworthy Frontis 117 

This month, Opera Naples holds the first session of the Renata Scotto Opera Program. The members of the inaugural class will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with Scotto through lessons, master classes and coachings during two ten-day seminars at the Wang Opera Center in Naples, Florida.

Thomas Hampson has a busy Jan. On the fifth, he is in Turkey performing with Luca Pisaroni and the Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra. Hampson then travels to Germany—first to Munich for Bayerische Staatsoper performances of Srnka’s South Pole, then to Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonic for a concert with The Philharmonics. At the end of the month, he sings Scarpia in Wiener Staatsoper performances of Tosca, conducted by Plácido Domingo. 

The Royal Opera House’s first revival of George Benjamin’s Written on Skin opens on Jan. 13, starring Barbara Hannigan as Agnès, the role that marked her debut at ROH in 2013. Next month, Hannigan sings Lulu at Staatsoper Hamburg. In March and April, the soprano/conductor splits her time between stage and podium for concerts in Zurich and performances of Matsukaze in Brussels. She closes her season as Ophelia in the world premiere of Brett Dean’s Hamlet at Glyndebourne.

Mexican tenor Diego Silva made his Met debut on New Year’s Eve, singing Roméo et Juliette’s Tybalt, a role he sings in New York through Jan. 28 and again in March. Silva then spends April, May and June singing Alfredo in Lucerne. Over the summer, he joins the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Andrew Davis, for performances of Thaïs, in which Silva will sing Nicias to the Thaïs of Erin Wall and the Athanaël of Quinn Kelsey.

In honor of its fiftieth anniversary at Lincoln Center, the Met Opera has unveiled a new exhibition, on display now through the end of the opera season, in the lower-level lobby’s Founder’s Hall. Rosalind Elias and Justino Díaz—who appeared in the Antony and Cleopatra world premiere that opened the 1966–67 season—helped open the exhibit, which features photographs from new productions that inaugurated the Lincoln Center House.

Bernstein’s Candide receives seven performances  by New York City Opera this month, from Jan. 6–12 at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater. Harold Prince directs a cast that includes Broadway and opera performers such as Gregg Edelman, Linda Lavin, Jay Armstrong Johnson and Meghan Picerno.

WQXR’s Q2 Music has launched a new podcast that will run through Jan. 9. Called Helga, and hosted by Helga Davis, the podcast features conversations with personalities of opera and classical music, as well as theater and pop music. The debut episode features Peter Sellars; future subjects include Alan Gilbert and Julia Bullock. The podcast can be accessed on q2music.orgspacer
