Q&A: Soprano Rainelle Krause on Taking the Queen of the Night to New Heights - Opera Wire

"There are so many ways of singing this role, and so many different voices that it’s been interesting to take little bits and pieces from different artists and see what feels the best in my own instrument and what sort of rings true with my personality and my experiences."

We're just three weeks away from two incredible performances of Mozart's THE MAGIC FLUTE! April 8th & 10th in Raleigh.

"During the early pandemic days of tumult and uncertainty, NC Opera stepped up and did the right thing for their artists at a time when we desperately needed their support. They went above and beyond to treat us fairly and respectfully, and I am thrilled for the chance to bring this production to life two tumultuous years later." - BroadwayWorld

American soprano Rainelle Krause continues her reign as The Queen of The Night, fresh on the heels of an acclaimed run of performances in the same role with Houston Grand Opera in February.

Ever dreamed of being a distiller for a day? Now is your chance to craft your very own barrel of Bourbon Whiskey from start to finish at Mystic Farm and Distillery in Durham! 🥃 This ultimate distillery experience is available as part of the North Carolina Opera Gala's silent auction. ✨

Starting from grain milling and ending at barreling, you're in control of the distilling process. Under the guidance of distilling industry experts, you'll create a luxurious, bold, and sophisticated spirit. After your visit, take home a bottle of your very own unaged bourbon, and leave the barrel at Mystic Distillery for custom laser engraving.

Each year, you can return to sample your aging spirit until finally it is ready for production. Then, you have first dibs on cases of the perfectly aged bourbon straight from the barrel.

Happy birthday to Leontyne Price!
The opera world has lost one of our great set designers, EZIO FRIGERIO, who died on Wednesday at the age of 91. He was best known for his collaborations with director Giorgio Strehler, among them a celebrated Mozart-da Ponte trilogy at La Scala. Other highlights included LA RONDINE which was seen in Paris, New York, and San Francisco; DIE FRAU OHNE SCHATTEN in Toulouse; the tomb of his friend Rudolf Nureyev in Paris; and possibly the most beautiful production in Metropolitan Opera history, Zandonai’s FRANCESCA DA RIMINI.
"Harrell said he would see uniformed soldiers at the airport departing for the Persian Gulf, and think, “They were the same age as my students in the conservatory … How can I serve them?” “So I started Heroes’ Voices, essentially, to let me do music therapy with veterans,” Harrell recalled."
Born on this date in Pesaro one hundred years ago, the great soprano RENATA TEBALDI (1922-2004). She made her debut in "Mefistofele" in 1944, and had her first big success singing in the reopening concert for La Scala in 1946 under the baton of Toscanini. She soon was a regular there, and at other leading houses, including Covent Garden (1950), Paris and Buenos Aires (both 1951), and was especially beloved at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, where she sang 269 performances of 14 roles between 1955 and 1973. Here she is in a stunning rendition of Leonora's aria from the Monastery Scene of "La forza del destino" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XabocHuE2Ow
