Lucia di Lammermoor will close the Wiener Staatsoper 2011 2012 season on June 30th. This traditional production is often mounted with leading artists throughout any given season and the finale is no different as Miss Diana Damrau will essay Lucia, and Mr. Piotr Beczala as Edgardo. Both artists have previously appeared in the Lucia, and are a rather popular ticket at the Staatsoper. Mr. Gullillermo Garcia is on the podium. COMMANDOpera notes the Wiener Staatsoper will be offering a most curious 2012 2013 season which begs to be followed. For example, the American soprano Angela Meade will essay Elena in I Vespri Siciliani during the Autumn. Miss Meade has of late been appearing as Norma here and there, with critics lauding her performances. COMMANDOpera is concerned the artist is undertaking roles beyond her capacity which will lead to a distinctly attenuated career.
