Doctor Karaoke #5: Youth and Love

Hey, this opera isn't all vengeance and beatings. Here, we hear the ardent young Léandre, tenderly serenading his Lucinde outside her window (and thus enraging her father, of course). The music and words are a bit on the flowery side, but he is a tenor, after all . . .

This recording is taken from the January, 2006 premiere of this translation/orchestration, and features Wesley Lawrence, now a doctoral student in opera studies at the prestigious Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.
