Nothing is as rousing as the sound of a full opera chorus! Opera is storytelling on a grand scale, and the choruses serve key supporting roles: to illuminate the desires and of a character (Carmen‘s “Habanera”), to heighten the emotion of a tragic scene (“Humming Chorus” from Madama Butterfly), or simply to provide local flavor and bring a setting to life (Verdi’s Anvil Chorus). Some, like Verdi’s “Va Pensiero,” which is now as much an anthem of Italian patriotism as it is a nostalgic song of Hebrew slaves, have taken on a life of their own. We join with Madrigal Chorale (Dr. Robert Martin, Dir.) to present these and other iconic, well-loved pieces from the world of opera, from Mozart through the Golden Age of Opera.
$15 adult, $12 student/senior, $30 family
For discounted advance tickets ($13/$10/$26),
