From the writing of T. S. Eliot’s 1935 play, “Murder at the Cathedral” remains one of Ildebrando Pizzetti’s most celebrated compositions. This dramatic opera portrays the assassination of Archbishop Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral during the reign of Henry II in 1170.
*Ferrucio Furlanetto, previously announced to sing the role of Thomas Becket, has withdrawn from this production to focus on his recital which will take place on Thursday, July 13, 2023 at the Harris Theater. Replacing him will be Andrea Silvestrelli.
