Concert Opera Series:
Opera Medium-Rare (but well done!)
A series of three special concert opera productions
Each of these is a relatively unknown but dramatically solid work, full of wonderful vocal writing and vivid theatricality. Our presentations will be with piano accompaniment and musical direction by our music director Jonathan Khuner. The performances will be on-book, without staging or costumes, in Italian, and the audience will have enhanced supertitles to help them imagine the action.
