Angela’s “plush-voiced, wise” (New York Times) portrayal of Alice Ford in Verdi’s comic opera Falstaff will be available to own on DVD and BluRay October 9, thanks to Decca Classics and the Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD series. “Her full lyric soprano darted and swooped, with trills and high C’s neatly in place,” wrote the New York Observer of Angela’s performance, alongside a cast that includes Stephanie Blythe as Mistress Quickly, Lisette Oropesa as Nannetta, Jennifer Johnson Cano as Meg, and Franco Vassallo as Ford. James Levine conducts Robert Carsen’s production in this performance, which was originally transmitted to movie theaters worldwide on December 14, 2015.
