Opera

Angela Gheorghiu

Sat / Sep 19

Jeff Cohen, accompanist

The great diva returns to The Broad Stage to open our new season with passionate arias and songs by Puccini, Bellini, Verdi, and Gluck. An unstoppable force of nature, the Romanian soprano commands the stage with her profound musicality, fiery charisma, and one of the “finest natural instruments in the world” (The Independent). Save-thedate for an unforgettable evening with Angela Gheorghiu, classical Brit’s “Female Artist of the Year,” as she lights up the Westside.

Come Early & Enjoy!
Mix and mingle at the free pre-show wine reception. Doors open at 6:30pm.
