ROSSINI OPERA GALA
November 13, 2018, 7:00pm.
The Alberta Symphony Orchestra presents Rossini Opera Gala, a tribute to Gioachino Rossini on the date of his 150th anniversary of death. Little ones and grown-ups are welcome to a night of celebration entirely dedicated to Rossini’s incredible music. From the most famous tunes such as Bugs Bunny’s favorite The Barber of Seville to the ultra-dynamic galop heralded by trumpets of William Tell, as well as popular Arias – Figaro’s Largo al Factotum, one for all – and chorus pieces, this will be a journey into the world of Rossini. Fresh from a sensational Canada 150 concert, the Alberta Symphony Orchestra returns to Edmonton with a new great production featuring conductor Emilio De Mercato, singers Cara McLeod (soprano), Whitney Sloan (soprano), Barbara King (mezzo soprano), Adam Fisher (tenor), Bertrand Malo (bass/baritone), and chorus.
