Jamie Barton talked to Frederica von Stade, the legendary mezzo-soprano, about storytelling, breaking through standard fach boundaries, and Julie Andrews.
February is the month of the mezzo-soprano here at Lincoln Center. Jamie Barton takes center stage February 5 as this year’s Richard Tucker Award winner in From Bocelli to Barton: The Richard Tucker Opera Gala on Live From Lincoln Center, and Frederica von Stade returns February 18 in Ricky Ian Gordon’s opera-in-concert A Coffin in Egypt at American Songbook. Between performances, Barton interviewed von Stade — one of her idols — about music and her multifaceted career.
