A surprise DVD release! From the 2000 Production of “Little Women” at the Houston Grand Opera, this touching new opera became an instant classic in the American Repertoire! Now available on the Naxos Label!
From the Houston Grand Opera with Stephanie Novacek (Jo), Joyce DiDonato (Meg), Chad Shelton (Laurie), Daniel Belcher (John)
Patrick Summers (Conductor), Peter Webster (Director)
HGO always brings together the strongest possible cast for its commissioned works, and this is no exception. It is no surprise that Joyce DiDonato, who was on the verge of a stunning international career at the time of this premiere, stands out. Her portrayal of Meg is vocally perfect, her acting ability is spot-on. If nothing else, this DVD is a vivid portrait of a star truly being born.ConcertoNet
