Portland Summer Fest: Opera in the Park - Washington Park
Washington Park Amphitheater
410 SW Kingston Ave
August, 2 2013 6:00pm
Free performances of Otello on Friday, August 2nd at 6 pm at the Washington Park Amphitheater, next to the Rose Gardens, and on Sunday, August 4th at 6 pm on the Concordia University Campus Green in NE Portland.
This year promises to be a memorable production with full chorus and orchestra led by Maestro Keith Clark and a stellar cast featuring internationally known tenor Allan Glassman as Otello, and Oregon native and Metropolitan Opera baritone Richard Zeller as Iago. The role of Desdemona will be sung by Metropolitan Opera soprano Angela Meade, a Centralia, Washington native who sang for us in 2010, and brought record crowds to the performances. Rounding out the cast will be John Matthew Myers as Cassio, and Portland’s own Angela Niederloh as Emilia.
