Placido Domingo and Sondra Radvanovsky in the Final Scene of Cyrano de Bergerac
The most exciting classical music news in Toronto next week is the opening of the high-profile Black Creek Summer Music Festival on June 4 at the Rexall Centre. Megastar tenor Placido Domingo is coming after an absence of many years to kick off the Festival with a gala performance that also stars the great Verdi soprano Sondra Radvanovsky. These two artists collaborated in the rarely performed opera Cyrano de Bergerac by Franco Alfano, in the famous Francesca Zambello production that was seen at the Met, Covent Garden, Valencia, and La Scala. Here is the Final Scene from the opera, captured with a stationary camera. The picture and sound quality are not the best but it is still worth seeing for the incandescent performance by the two artists.
