Luigi Nono’s Intolleranza at Carnegie Hall with the American Symphony Orchestra
Feb. 27, 2018
On March 1, the American Symphony Orchestra, led by Leon Botstein, will present Luigi Nono’s powerful one-act opera Intolleranza with a talented cast of singers including tenor Daniel Weeks, soprano Serena Benedetti, mezzo-soprano Hai-Ting Chinn, baritone Matthew Worth, and bass-baritone Carsten Wittmoser. The Bard Festival Chorale, led by Thomas Bagwell, assists.
Composed in 1960, Intolleranza was written as a response to the effects of fascism and dictatorship and an expression of hope for a world without war.
