After plans of returning to Santa Fe as Count Almaviva this summer were thwarted due to the pandemic, former Santa Fe Opera Apprentice, Jack Swanson, presents Songs of Love and Loss — a full length, professionally-produced masterpiece, exclusively for PSF@Home.  

With his distinctive high lyric voice, perfectly suited to the acrobatic arias of Rossini, Swanson is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after young tenors in the opera world.  Following recent principal debuts with Los Angeles Opera, Norwegian Opera, and Glyndebourne, Jack has joined forces with pianist Roderick Phipps-Kettlewell and some of Minnesota’s best audio and video engineers for this ambitious new project, filmed and produced entirely in quarantine.

This enchanting livestream concert event runs for 1 hour and 15 minutes, with a program including Schumann’s Dichterliebe, Quilter’s Shakespeare Songs, Poulenc, Bernstein, Puccini, and more!  It’s as close to a live vocal recital as you can get and it’s available exclusively to PSF Annual Fund Members as part of our new digital concert season PSF@Home.
