The Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice has announced that this year’s live opera staging, typically the highlight of its annual summer music festival will be a drive-in performance of Puccini’s “Tosca.” The performance, set for August 29, will take place at Tech City in Kingston, New York. As with drive-in movie experiences, audience members will drive into parking slots and turn on their car radios for sound. The venue and the technology will ensure that
Joyce El-Khoury, who gives her role a stirring intensity, is particularly convincing as Iphigénie. Her dramatic aria is a triumph. The sadness and abandonment of this role is very poignantly expressed in the sensitive rendering of the Lebanese-Canadian soprano Joyce El-Khoury. She carries an impressive vocal line.
A last minute cast-change at Staatsoper Stuttgart will result in Joyce's role debut as Iphigénie. This will also mark Joyce's house debut. Iphigénie en Tauride will run February 4 to March 4, 2020. Click here for more information on the production and click here for more on the cast announcement.
