On October 21, Leah Crocetto makes her debut as the title role in a concert performance of Bellini’s Norma at North Carolina Opera. Elizabeth DeShong portrays Adalgisa and Chad Shelton sings Pollione, with Antony Walker on the podium.
The following month, Ms. Crocetto can be seen on the stage of Carnegie Hall, where she sings a recital on November 8 with pianist Mark Markham by her side. The program features works by Respighi, Poulenc, Rachmaninov, Gershwin, Arlen, Rodgers, Fain and the NY premiere of Eternal Recurrence, a song cycle composed for her by Gregory Peebles which she debuted in 2016.
