Last weekend was Knoxville Opera’s popular Rossini Festival that filled theatres and the streets with diverse entertainments. It’s main production this year was Giuseppe Verdi’s Otello starring Michael Austin in the title role, Kassandra Dimopoulou as Desdemona, and Scott Bearden as Iago. I review the production in this week’s issue of Metro Pulse. Online here.
Knoxville Opera announced its 2012-13 season including Die Fledermaus, The Girl of the Golden West, and La Cenerentola.
