Canadian superstar baritone on the rise, Elliot Madore and Diamond Lane host Sarah Jo Kirsch
Appearing on some of the most prestigious stages in North America, Western Europe, Australia, and Japan; this 29-year-old phenom is winning ears and hearts with his “rich, burgundy voice” (New York Classical Review, 2017).
Fresh from singing the role of Mercutio in the MET’s recent production of Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, the Women’s Musical Club of Winnipeg has invited Elliot to take a break from his operatic schedule and share a recital of his own creative design in a more intimate setting. In collaboration with Winnipeg pianist Darryl Friesen, the duo will present a program of Robert Schumann, Manuel De Falla, and Charles Ives at the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s Muriel Richardson Auditorium on Sunday afternoon (April 2) at 2 PM.
Here is Sarah Jo’s interview with Elliot Madore – in studio March 31st 2017!
