Acclaim for Norma at Los Angeles Opera

November 25th, 2015

norma-crop-u9224Angela Meade “made a formidable Norma” (Orange County Register) at Los Angeles Opera’s opening night performance of the Bellini tragedy on November 21. “A sturdy, powerful soprano with exacting control, Angela Meade offers a textbook example of how to handle every nuance of Bellini’s exquisite melodic writing for his title character,” praised the Los Angeles Times, continuing in a description of Angela’s performances opposite castmate Jamie Barton’s Adalgisa that “the Meade-Barton amalgam is a sound so stunning that in the audience Saturday there were laughs of pure pleasure.” “She’s got a big, lyric voice that can rise above fortissimo climaxes, yet remains nimble and supple enough for the graceful singing and pianissimo point required in bel canto,” said the Orange County Register.

Performances of Anne Bogart’s production continue on November 29 as well as December 2, 5, 10, and 13, under the baton of James Conlon. Find tickets to Norma and more information here.
