Concert Performance with the Washington National Opera Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program

This onetime concert by young artists of the Washington National Opera transports us back a century to the golden age of opera. The key figure is Jules Massenet, commercially the most successful composer of the Belle Époque but artistically less well-known than younger contemporaries in France such as Claude Debussy or Gustave Charpentier. Massenet composed Le Jongleur de Notre-Dame, the best-known musical drama version of the medieval story. Flanking arias from this opera are other songs about minstrels and monasteries. The result is sure to be a very special performance.
