Angela is Mathilde in Rossini’s William Tell this May

April 24th, 2014

For her first appearances as the Austrian princess Mathilde in Rossini’s William Tell, Angela joins a strong cast, including Dalibor Jenis and John Osborn, in a new production of the rarely heard opera from renowned English director Graham Vick, CBE, at the Teatro Regio di Torino. Principal Conductor Gianandrea Noseda leads the orchestra (May 7, 11 & 18). Next season, Angela and the cast will reunite to reprise their roles at New York’s Carnegie Hall (Dec 7), during the Teatro Regio di Torino’s upcoming U.S. Tour.

This European debut follows on the heels of Meade’s “enormous success” (New York Times) in New York, where she recently headlined Bellini’s Norma and showed off her comic chops in Verdi’s Falstaff, both at the Metropolitan Opera, with the latter seen worldwide in the Met’s Live in HD series. She also graced a “dream team of opera singers” (New York Times) at a special Richard Tucker Centennial Gala, broadcast Live from Lincoln Center on PBS-TV.
