Featuring Clara Rottsolk, soprano & Jason McStoots, tenor
Works by Clérambault, Rameau, and more.
Just as in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, true love sometimes ends with the ultimate sacrifice. Two evocative cantatas by Clérambault (Pyrame et Thisbé and Héro et Leandre) plus excerpts from Rameau’s groundbreaking opera Hippolyte et Aricie relate the timeless tales of star-crossed lovers in this new program featuring acclaimed soprano Clara Rottsolk (“supple and stylish…unflaggingly attractive” – Gramophone) and tenor Jason McStoots (“an exquisite singer and a fine actor” – Cleveland Plain Dealer).
