Florentine Opera - WUTHERING HEIGHTS

The Florentine Opera brings American Opera Composer Carlisle Floyd’s operatic masterpiece to the stage. Jealousy and vengefulness, reign through this live concert performance of Carlisle Floyd’s classic American opera, based upon the classic novel by Emily Brontë. Floyd’s score takes you to the heart of Catherine and Healthcliff’s clandestine love story, live on the concert stage of the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center with an all-star cast of Florentine favorites, and the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Maestro Joseph Mechavich. Soprano Georgia Jarman (Elettra in Idomeneo, 2012; Marie in La Fille du Regiment, 2006; Giulietta in I Capuleti e i Montecchi, 2008; Gilda in Rigoletto, 2010) sings the role of Catherine with baritone Kelly Markgraf making his Florentine debut as Heathcliff. Soprano Heather Buck (Valencienne in The Merry Widow, 2007; Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute, 2009; and Lulu Baines in Elmer Gantry, 2010) returns to the Florentine as Isabel, while tenor Vale Rideout (Frank Shallard in Elmer Gantry, 2010) returns as her brother, Edgar. Suzanne Mentzer (mezzo-soprano) makes her Florentine debut as Nelly, and tenor Frank Kelley (Spoletta in Tosca, 2009; Eddie Fislinger in Elmer Gantry, 2010; Pang in Turandot, 2011; and Basilio in The Marriage of Figaro, 2013) sings the role of Joseph. This live opera performance will be recorded for commercial release under the Bridge Records label.
