Capriccio

Kiri Te Kanawa gives an elegant and touching performance in one of her greatest roles, the wealthy and cultured young Countess Madeleine, who must choose between her two artist suitors: the composer Flamand (David Kuebler) and the poet Olivier (Simon Keenlyside). Jan-Hendrik Rootering is La Roche, the temperamental theater director whose troupe entertains the Countess. Wolfgang Brendel is her brother, the Count, and Kathryn Harries sings the actress Clairon. Andrew Davis conducts.
