Lyric Opera Central Coast will cool the air and raise the roof this summer with their Summer Opera Gala at the classic Avoca Beach Picture Theatre - an evening of opera favourites and orchestral power with some of Australia’s finest singers and musicians, guaranteed to leave an audience wanting more.
Artistic Director and Conductor Dr Steven Stanke said “We have created another exciting concert to introduce new artists to the Central Coast and we warmly welcome all those who appreciate fine music in a friendly setting.
Local singer Dmitri Pronin will be joined by national opera stars Leah Thomas, Jermaine Chau and Sitiveni Talei, performing live with a 14-piece orchestra.”
There will be highlights from Rossini’s The Barber of Seville including Figaro’s aria ‘Largo al factotum’, sung by Siti and ‘Una voce poco fa’ performed by Jermaine, and arias from Puccini (‘Quando me’n vo’ from La Bohème, sung by Leah), Verdi (‘Celeste Aida’ sung by Dmitri) and Bellini, the stunningly beautiful ‘Song to the Moon’ from Rusalka, sung by Leah.
Of course, there will be duets, ‘La ci darem la mano’ from Don Giovanni and the Flower Duet from Lakme, sung by Leah and Jermaine, and much more.
There will be orchestral overtures and intermezzos and the concert will finish with the rousing quartet from Verdi’s Rigoletto.
7:30pm, Sunday 4 Feb 2018. Adults $55, Conc $45, Groups of 10 or more $40 each.
