Dame Kiri’s festival circuit

Soprano Dame Kiri te Kanawa is to perform at three North American summer music festivals – Washington D.C.’s Wolf Trap, Chicago’s Ravinia and the famous Ontario Elora Festival on July 13. Elora artistic director Noel Edison said: “It’s a first for this festival. Someone of this stature we’ve never had before.” Dame Kiri’s Washington programme includes Strauss, Pucini arias and Canteloube’s Songs of the Auvergne, while in Chicago the singer also performs two selections from La BohËme and Cilea’s ‘Io son l’umile ancella’ from Adriana Lecouvreur.
