Mezzo-Soprano Heather Gallagher and Baritone Joseph Parrish join our Festival Artists for an enchanting morning of art song and lieder. Director of Artistic Planning, Trevor Neal, has curated an intriguing recital program of songs composed in the nearly forty years between 1888 and 1922. His selections highlight the changing styles of music that emanated from four important centers of music-making: from Vienna, the voice of the Hugo Wolf, known as the aesthetic adversary to the traditionalist Brahms; from France, varied sound-pictures of Faure; from Italy, the genius of the often-overlooked Respighi; and from the UK, the imagination and sensitivity of Gerald Finzi.

Love-Betrayal-Murder…experience the compelling story of Carmen in an up close and thrilling performance. La Tragédie de Carmen is a pared down version of Bizet’s well-known opera, trimming away the chorus and grand sets to focus on the relationships, motivations, and drama of the four main characters. Set in an intimate space with piano accompaniment, the 70 minute production uses the most famous tunes and musical moments from Carmen to thrill the audience with its intensity.
The production is sung in French with English subtitles.
tickets are $30 each. All tickets include a meet-the-artists reception after the performance.
