Maometto II with Washington Concert Opera
On November 21, Leah Crocetto will star as Anna in Rossini’s rarely performed opera, Maometto II, with Washington Concert Opera.
Marking her debut with the company, Ms. Crocetto has previously sung the role of Anna to great acclaim, with The New York Times praising: “Ms. Crocetto has an agile coloratura technique and a feeling for the Italianate style. And she won your heart during Anna’s reflective scenes and arias, sung with warmth, full penetrating sound and tenderness, especially the final aria, when Anna remembers her beloved mother.”
Joining Ms. Crocetto on stage is Ashraf Sewailam as Maometto II, Bruce Sledge as Paolo Erisso and Elizabeth DeShong as Calbo. Antony Walker conducts.
