Orchestra of St. Luke’s at Caramoor
Les Vespres Siciliennes, Giuseppe Verdi
Bel Canto at Caramoor
Formed at the Caramoor International Music Festival in the summer of 1979, Orchestra of St. Luke’s continues to perform as orchestra-in-residence at its Caramoor birthplace. OSL’s musicians return to perform at the Venetian Theater each summer amid Caramoor’s beautiful Italianate estate and gardens in Katonah, New York.
In its original French version, Les Vêpres Siciliennes is a seldom-heard but remarkable opera. Through passionate vocal writing, Verdi tells a story of revenge, power, and patriotism.
