Michael Capasso presents the Gershwins' Porgy and Bess
ANGELA OWENS (Ensemble/Strawberry Woman Understudy) is internationally recognized for her "sensual", "arresting" (St. Louis Post Dispatch) and "beautifully musical" (The London Times) performances, as well as her "elegant" and "particularly captivating" stage presence (Tallahassee Democrat). Throughout the 2008-2009 season, Ms. Owens performed in venues such as the Royal Theater Carré (Amsterdam), Auditorio de Cuença (Madrid), Theatre du Grand Casino (Geneva) and the Deutches Theater in Munich. Recent operatic roles include Despina (Così fan Tutte), Blanche (Dialogues des Carmélites), Naiade (Ariadne auf Naxos), Miss Jessel (The Turn of the Screw) and the roles of both Annie and Clara in Gershwin's Porgy and Bess in over twenty opera houses and concert halls throughout the U.S. and the United Kingdom. Ms. Owens' experience also extends to the concert stage, where she counts among her repertoire Handel's Messiah, Schubert's Mass in G, Vivaldi's Gloria, Brahms' Liebeslieder Waltzes and Mozart's Coronation Mass.
