Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra debut this weekend

Screen Shot 2014-10-10 at 11.27.54 AM copy“Now at her vocal peak” (Philadelphia Inquirer), Susan Graham scored a fresh triumph this summer at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, where, as Anna in a new production of The King and I, she made her first foray into musical theater since her student days. Now the Grammy Award-wining mezzo returns to the concert hall, launching the 2014-15 season under Edo de Waart in her Malaysian Philharmonic debut, and joining a trio of top orchestras – the London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Flemish Philharmonic, and John Eliot Gardiner’s Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique – for her signature Berlioz. Long recognized as one of the world’s foremost exponents of French music, Graham returns with Berlioz to the San Francisco Opera, revisiting her star turn as Didon in an original staging of Les Troyens, while for her return to the Metropolitan Opera she sings the title role in Susan Stroman’s new take on The Merry Widow. Ever “an artist to treasure” (New York Times), Graham looks forward to headlining gala concerts at Los Angeles Opera and Lyric Opera of Chicago, where she joins Jane Lynch, Renée Fleming, Ramsey Lewis, and other celebrities to honor the company’s 60th anniversary, and rounds out the season in company with her regular recital partner, pianist Malcolm Martineau, for a west coast tour and a season-closing appearance in Classical Action’s Michael Palm Series.
