Inger Dam-Jensen sings title role of Alcina with Ruxandra Donose as Bradamante at Royal Danish Opera
Inger Dam-Jensen sings the title role in Handel Alcina and Ruxandra Donose sings Bradamante at the Royal Danish Opera, opening on 21 February. They join a cast which also features Anke Briegel as Morgana and Marius Roth Christensen as Oronte.
Dam-Jensen recently completed a run as Donna Anna in Mozart Don Giovanni at the Royal Swedish Opera, and later this year will appear again at the Royal Danish Opera as Leonora in Nielsen Maskarade.
This will be the second of two exciting role debuts this season for Donose. It follows her acclaimed debut as Arsace Semiramide in Lyon and Paris under the baton of Evelino Pidò:
"Romanian mezzo Ruxandra Donose dominates the stage with her strong personality. This role debut offers her countless opportunities to showcase her talents as actresses…her perfect French pronunciation and irresistible character.”
