La Traviata

During the summer of 2021 Samual made his return to the

stage after 2 years of the COVID-19 pandemic. His return saw

his role debut of Alfredo in Verdi's La traviata. The beautiful

Al. Ringling Theater, built in 1915, was designed after the 

grand French opera houses and is a must see if visiting

Baraboo, Wisconsin.

Ariodante

Sometimes opera as an art form allows for performances in

interesting venues. These performances took place on the steps

of the Badia delle Sante Flora e Lucilla in Arezzo, Italy. This work

features a Mezzo-Soprano playing a man in the title role. 

Oftentimes referred to as a pants role, these roles were

originally performed by a castrato.
