Night Music: A Night at the Opera

April 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Since its inception, opera’s extravagant sets, over-the-top costumes, and legendary superstars have kept the genre wildly popular. Eighteenth- and nineteenth-century music lovers who couldn’t get enough of opera’s expensive thrills brought it into their homes on a smaller scale through arrangements of overtures and arias, operatically-inspired instrumental music, and theatrical cantatas or “Singspiels” such as those on our program by Michael Haydn (Der Bassgeiger du Wörgl) and Thomas Arne (The Morning). We also introduce our own arrangement of Mozart’s concert aria “Per questa bella mano” for bass and obbligato double bass. 

With guest singers Laura Heimes and Graham Bier
