Professor Adriana Zabala Records Recently Discovered Work by Pauline Garcia Viardot

February 13, 2017

Adriana Zabala (voice) and Camille Zamora (soprano and co-founder of Sing for Hope) recently discovered an unpublished and unrecorded manuscript of a 19th century chamber opera, Le Dernier Sorcier, by the composer and pedagogue Pauline Garcia Viardot. Zabala and Zamora recently recorded the piece at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York City. Also featured on the recording are mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton and bass-baritone Eric Owens, both currently starring the Metropolitan Opera's production of Rusalka, and The Manhattan Girls Chorus. The piece is slated for a live performance and CD release at the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage in the fall of 2017.
