George London Foundation Recitals
Pairs of outstanding opera singers, many of whom have won a George London Award, perform in this annual series of recitals, now in its twenty-fourth year. A reception with the artists follows each recital.
Rihab Chaieb, mezzo-soprano
Lawson Anderson, bass-baritone
Ken Noda, piano
Both singers are 2018 George London Award winners. A native of Montréal, Quebec, Chaieb is a recent graduate of the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program and won Third Prize at the 2018 edition of Plácido Domingo’s Operalia, the World Opera Competition. Her performances last season included debuts in the title role in Offenbach’s Fantasio at Opéra et Orchestre National de Montpellier and as Kasturbai in Philip Glass’s Satyagraha at Opera Ballet Vlaanderen. In 2019, Anderson joins the principal roster of the Semperoper Dresden, taking on the roles of Figaro in Le nozze di Figaro, Schaunard in La bohème, and Angelotti in Tosca, among others.
