The Portland Opera‘s next production launches November 2. It’s Cinderella, more commonly called La Cenerentola, by Rossini. This version, an “original production” by the Portland Opera, starring Angela Niederloh.
Tickets are still available – but probably not for long.
Angela Niederloh is a rare bird, a coloratura mezzo-soprano much in demand for her range and skill. She is also a PSU grad, a PSU faculty member, and a founder of Oregon Lyric Opera (short lived and missed). She’s already performed three seasons with the Houston Grand Opera Studio, and engagements with the San Francisco Opera, Opera Omaha, Wolf Trap Opera, and recitals with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, San Francisco Opera Orchestra, Oregon Symphony, Aspen Festival Orchestra, Columbia Symphony, Choral Arts Ensemble and Choral Crossties. Her debut with the Portland Opera was as Melibea in Il Viaggio a Rheims, also by Rossini.
