Official Description

This event has been cancelled.

Go beyond Aida, Bohème, and Carmen in this celebration of rarely performed men’s ensemble repertoire by composers primary known for their contributions to the operatic stage. Featuring works by Rossini, Richard Strauss, and Rufus Wainwright. Major pieces include Jake Heggie's A Hundred Thousand Stars and Bizet's Saint Jean de Pathos. Mozart's Die Zauberflöte overture gets a bit of an overhaul. And how could we give a concert called "Night at the Opera" and not feature the Marx Brothers in some way? Who knows? Maybe your favorite RenMan will toss in an aria or two! We are pleased to two welcome two special guests to this concert – tenor Fred C. Van Ness Jr. (Boston Lyric Opera) and pianist Thomas B. Dawkins (Handel and Haydn Society, Longy School of Music).
