Alessandro and Domenico — father and son — produced an endless stream of masterpieces in miniature. The prolific Alessandro Scarlatti formed important links between the early Baroque Italian vocal styles and the classical school, and his son Domenico was one of the most admired musicians of the period. Young bel canto voices interpret their legacy in this special concert series, bringing the Scarlattis’ amazing works to life.
About Bel Canto Young Artists Program:
Each year, about a dozen young singers participate in six-to-eight weeks of intensive training in vocal technique and specialized study of the ornamentation that characterizes bel canto singing. Selected by Opera Director Will Crutchfield to participate in the mentoring program, the singers study the repertoire and participate in full scale rehearsals of the summer operas presented at Caramoor, act as understudies to the principal roles, are cast in some of the supporting opera roles, and perform in afternoon recitals that precede the opera performances. Additionally, the young artists showcase their talents in Summer Music Festival concerts such as this one. Many graduates of our Bel Canto mentoring program have gone from the Caramoor stage to the world stage.
