Mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton is in the recording studios this week with pianist Brian Zeger working on an upcoming Delos release, but that’s not the only reason she’s in the news today:
From The New York Times:
Jamie Barton, the acclaimed young mezzo-soprano, will return to the Metropolitan Opera in September as Giovanna Seymour in Donizetti’s “Anna Bolena,” the company announced Thursday. … “Anna Bolena,” starring Sondra Radvanovsky, opens Sept. 26, when Ms. Barton had been scheduled to sing in a benefit concert for the Historic DeSoto Theater in her hometown, Rome, Georgia. The Rome theater agreed to shift the date of the concert to accommodate Ms. Barton’s Met appearance; the benefit will now be held Sept. 27.
