The Unicorn, the Gorgon, and the Manticore (Gian-Carlo Menotti) and Great Opera Choruses
May 16, 2015, 4:00pm First United Methodist Church 500 E. Colorado, Pasadena
You are in for a treat: a 20th century madrigal fable by Gian-Carlo Menotti. Chorale Bel Canto will be joined by dancers from ArtistsPlus Productions, who will dance the story as it is sung by members of the Chorale. A challenging program, musically and philosophically!
Great Opera Choruses
Chorale Bel Canto, 80-voices strong, will sing eight well-known opera choruses. Soloists will be young artists from Redlands Opera Theatre.
Donors should soon be receiving an invitation to a special reception to follow the concert. Please respond to let us know you are attending.
And mark your calendars for April 29 for another Chorale program at the Whittwood Public Library!
Chorale Bel Canto Goes to the Theatre!
