UGA Opera Theatre Fall Gala: Bel Canto
The University of Georgia Opera Theatre will be presenting a Gala concert of highlights from ten different operas by the greatest composers of Bel Canto era music, including Donizetti, Rossini and Bellini. The era of Bel Canto, which translates to “Beautiful Singing,” was a style of singing and composing from the early decades of the 19th century. This style of singing and music is still a primary focus of opera companies world-wide.
The concert will be a major collaboration of three large Music School organizations: UGA Opera Theatre, UGA Symphony Orchestra, and the Hodgson Singers. There will be twelve soloists singing arias, duets, quartets, quintets, and ensembles of some of this era’s most beautiful music.
