First Ladies

Three grandes dames (one an actual dame) give rare recitals.

  1. 1. Kiri Te Kanawa

    October 11 at Carnegie Hall

    The magnificent New Zealander sings slightly less operatically proportioned works by opera composers (such as Strauss and Poulenc); she’s joined by a guest star who’s just about as famous as she, soprano Frederica von Stade.

  2. 2. Mariza

    October 12 at Carnegie Hall

    The master of fado, the melancholy, superbly fraught folk music of Portugal, brings the form Stateside.

  3. 3. Simone Dinnerstein

    October 12 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

    She’s not quite at diva level yet, but pianist Dinnerstein has gained attention for her version of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. Worth seeing in an intimate setting before she really takes off.
