Watch and listen as Opera da Camera brings to life some of the best known characters of the operatic and Broadway genres, and presents its audience with a great musical battle between good and evil.
In this dramatic concert, tales of heroism from brave knights and valiant princes come alive alongside stories of evil perpetrated by crooked kings, demonic barbers and wicked witches. Not everything is as clear as this simplistic division between good and evil however, and our perceptions of right and wrong are challenged by revelations of a more humane side to some of music’s most celebrated villains.
Will justice and honesty prevail, or will the night conclude on a darker note? Find out this coming June 13th at the Rialto Theatre!
Selected Songs: To dream the impossible dream (Leigh), L’amour est un oiseau rebelle (Bizet), Toréador (Bizet), Che farò senza Euridice (Gluck), Who am I ? (Schönberg), Dido’s Lament (Purcell)
