Palm Beach Opera adds Verdi Requiem to lineup

By David Fleshler

Giuseppe Verdi

Palm Beach Opera has added a single performance of Verdi’s Requiem to its upcoming season, with a very strong cast of soloists.

Morris Robinson’s rich bass has been heard several times on South Florida stages, including last year’s Palm Beach Opera performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. The young soprano Angela Meade received a glowing review from New York Times chief critic Anthony Tommasini last month for a “stunning” Norma at the Caramoor International Music Festival, where he praised her “gleaming sound and incisive attack.” The mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick’s powerful voice is regularly heard in starring roles at the Metropolitan Opera.

The performance, which will include the opera company’s orchestra and a 150-voice chorus, will be led by Bruno Aprea, the company’s artistic director.

The performance will be 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 16 at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach. Call 561-832-7469 or go to

    This is good news! The opera companies might want to think about switching to just concerts until the economy gets better.
