During my career in New England, concert opera performances of
major operatic works were among the most critically acclaimed
and popular with audiences. It was during this time that I worked
with Maria Ferrante and found her to be one of the most engaging
and moving vocal artists I've ever heard. The pathos Ferrante will
bring to the role of Butterfly is something patrons will not want to miss.

Soprano Maria Ferrante is passionate about her music and especially knows the language and culture of the Italian musical literature. Her bel canto style - literally meaning "beautiful singing" - is elegant and brilliant singing that is pleasing to the audience. Joining her on stage is the shimmering flute performance by Julia Scolnik, artistic director, and the brilliant artistry of pianist Randall Hodgkinson.
