SALERNI, P.: Tony Caruso's Final Broadcast (E. Fennell, P. Fennell, Risley, Tupay, Monocacy Chamber Orchestra, Jung-Ho Pak)

Paul Salerni’s award-winning opera with a libretto by Dana Gioia takes place in a classical music radio station on the last night of its operations. Its last program, ‘Opera Lover’, is hosted by Antonio Caruso, who remembers his early dreams of artistic fame as the ‘second Caruso’ and is visited by three ghosts—his dead mother, Maria Callas, and a mysterious woman. Praised for his ‘resplendent vocalism’ (American Record Guide) and his ‘lusciously sweet voice, with its ringing, perfectly-tuned high notes’ (Opera Now), the young tenor Eric Fennell sings the title role.
