She has a beautiful voice that can handle all the ornamentation that Rossini throws her way, plus the no-nonsense, full-throttle, no-holds-barred, magnificent, full out voice that he expects. She is truly a feast for the eyes.

The Tempest at Santa Fe’s Lensic Theater
The Lensic Performing Arts Center
In collaboration with Santa Fe Pro Musica Presents

An adaptation featuring dramatic readings by the celebrated actors

Sir Derek Jacobi and Richard Clifford
& the Santa Fe Pro Musica Baroque Ensemble
TEMPEST, an adaptation by Richard Clifford, stars distinguished actors Sir Derek Jacobi, immediately following his acclaimed performance in King Lear at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Richard Clifford, performing dramatic readings of selections from Shakespeare’s The Tempest

TEMPEST features music inspired by Shakespeare’s play performed by the Santa Fe Pro Musica Baroque Ensemble.

The Ensemble will be joined by soloists Deborah Domanski, mezzo-soprano and David Farwig, baritone, performing compositions by Mathew Locke, John Bannister, Handel and others. The Ensemble will be led by Thomas O’Connor, music director of Santa Fe Pro Musica.

This theatrical concert event will include the settings of Shakespeare’s text from the 1674 “operatic” staging ofThe Tempest, as well as settings of “Full Fathom Five,” “Come Unto These Yellow Sands,” and “Where the Bee Sucks.”

TEMPEST was adapted by Mr. Clifford in June 2010 for the Folger Consort, the early music ensemble-in-residence at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC.
