Popular choruses, ensembles and arias
The world of grand opera is often bigger than life, with elaborate story lines set to compelling music that involves the listener in the basic yet powerful emotions of love, betrayal, greed, jealousy, grief, and joy. In opera, reality gives way to the transcendent truth of art and to the power of music and words to touch the human heart at its deepest reaches. In Fantasy of the Opera, MOS, along with five professional opera soloists, will take you on a tour of favorite and familiar opera choruses, ensembles and arias that will explore the emotions listed above. We’ll include well-known pieces from Bizet’s Carmen, Verdi’s Il trovatore, Aida, and La traviata, Donizetti’s Lucia de Lammermoor, Wagner’s Tannhäuser, Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana, and much more. Come and join us for this season opener as we celebrate the Fantasy of the Opera.
Soloists for this performance are:
Megan Mashburn, Soprano
Magdalena Wor, Mezzo-Soprano
Joseph Michael Brent, Tenor
Brent Davis, Baritone
John LaForge, Bass-Baritone
