Dear Friends, Performers, and Fans of Bel Canto,
Welcome to Teatro Nuovo! This is where my team and I will be continuing and expanding the work of the Bel Canto at Caramoor program from 2018 onward.
You can read our press release here, and a brief description of our debut Festival here. On the Young Artist Program page you can find out about the innovations we’ve planned – I think it’s fair to say there is nothing quite like it in the current opera world. Further features, including information on research and the history of Italian opera, are planned as future additions to this site; check in and we will keep you posted!
“Bel Canto” – the Italian vocal tradition – remains the cornerstone of all opera singing. Its prime repertory is now about 200 years old and is more popular than ever. The time is right for new creativity in its interpretation and a new approach to conveying its age-old principles; Teatro Nuovo aims to be a hub for exploration and discovery.
Will Crutchfield, Artistic and General Director
