Marie-Nicole Lemieux Contralto
Orchestre de l’Opéra de Lyon - I Bollenti Spiriti
Stefano Montanari Musical conductor
There is a very special link between Marie-Nicole Lemieux and Antonio Vivaldi: in the last twenty years, she has embodied the heroes and heroines of the red priest on major stages, with an exceptional passion and presence that make her interpretations signature events. This remarkable singer uses all the refinements of her exceptional voice in the mysteries of Vivaldi’s virtuoso arias, but can also express the intensity of storms and rumbling thunder!
In this programme of magnificent opera arias and the poignant Stabat Mater, she will be accompanied by the Opera de Lyon Orchestra, playing its baroque formation on period instruments: I Bollenti Spiriti, under the baton of the brilliant conductor Stefano Montanari. Venetian marvels under the Serenissima’s thunder clouds…
