This year, we have invited Will Berger, renowned author, commentator and host of the Metropolitan Opera Radio broadcasts, to come to Austin to give us an Insider’s Look at the coming season of Austin Lyric Opera. Berger provided an Insider’s Look for our Season Brochure.
Now you can hear Berger LIVE along with panelists Richard Buckley, ALO Artistic Director and Principal Conductor, and Mary Phillips, acclaimed mezzo-soprano and a cast member from our season opener, Don Carlo. This fascinating panel will be moderated by Robert Faires, arts critic for the Austin Chronicle.
Panelists will discuss each of our three operas, the composers and the reason for the selection of these operas this season. You’ll learn what to expect from each performance, what to look for as an opera patron and what makes these operas timeless in their music and story. You’ll also gain an understanding of the historical significance of each opera and learn what it takes to produce and perform these operas.
This event is free and open to the public, but an RSVP is required.
