Opera in the Park: Angela Meade leads highlight-packed program
— James McQuillen for The Oregonian/OregonLive
Saturday, Portland SummerFest gave an over-the-top program of opera favorites in front of the towering cedar hedge of the Washington Park amphitheater.
Summerfest’s August opera offering has long been an improbably great event for a free outdoor gig, not least because conductor Keith Clark consistently engages stellar vocalists including star soprano Angela Meade. Joining her this time around were Metropolitan Opera colleagues mezzo Mary Ann McCormick and tenor Cameron Schutza as well as soprano Amy Hansen and baritone Luis Ledesma.
