The Legacy of Bel Canto

Rossini's 'William Tell' at the Caramoor Festival,
discussed by GREGORY MOOMJY

One such festival is the Caramoor Music Festival of Katonah, New York, USA, with its dedication to bel canto repertoire for its opera portion. It is true that since its resurgence after World War II, at the hands of Joan Sutherland and Maria Callas, bel canto opera is now firmly ensconced in the repertoire. But do not be fooled...
