A double bill from Opera Ithaca: Liberation/The Infinite Energy of Ada Lovelace (World Premiere)


Composed by Kamala Sankaram (THE INFINITE ENERGY OF ADA LOVELACE) and Francesca Caccini (LIBERATION), directed by Susannah Berryman & Mary Corsaro, and conducted by Mila Henry, this special Opera Ithaca double bill spotlights female composers. Opera Ithaca is the only opera company in the world which programs female-written work every season, and fittingly presents Francesca Caccini’s Liberation (La Liberazione di Ruggiero), the first opera written by a woman, alongside the world premiere of Sankram’s The Infinite Energy of Ada Lovelace. The top-notch cast includes New York City Opera tenor and Broadway actor Glenn Seven Allen, baritone Dennis Jesse, mezzo-soprano Courtney Elvira, and soprano Tamara Acosta. Susannah Berryman and Mary Corsaro, the team behind Thumbprint, collaborate with Mila Henry to contribute this exciting work to the contemporary opera scene.
