These, and more, performed by six professional opera singers in a delightful evening of best-known and best-loved arias and ensembles, all with projected supertitles to make sure everyone understands the complexity, clarity, and comedy of these all-too-human emotions.

This concert is punctuated with appropriate, humorous, and informative narrations from the stage by Opera Theater of Connecticut’s Artistic Director Alan Mann, a noted speaker and opera/music theater historian.
