AN EVENING OF CLASSICAL OPERA AND ARMENIAN FOLK SONGS
Sat., Oct. 8, 6 pm
presented by St. John Armenian Church, featuring Yeghishe Manucharyan (Tenor, Metropolitan Opera) and Victoria Avetisyan (Mezzo - Soprano, Boston Opera)
Metropolitan Opera tenor Yeghishe Manucharyan and Boston Opera mezzo-soprano Victoria Avetisyan will sing together for the first time in Milwaukee. The married couple will perform words and melodies familiar to opera lovers, including work by Verdi, Mozart and Puccini. But they will also take their Milwaukee audience to a less familiar place by singing folk songs from their native Armenia.
The young performers have already made an impression in the U.S. with concerts at the Kennedy Center, the San Diego Opera and Carnegie Hall, among many other venues adding South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center to their resumes with this performance.
Tickets: general admission $25.
Run time is approximately 90 minutes including intermission.
