Tenor Jack Swanson and Soprano Katherine Henly

Kick-Off Guild Hall & BCBC’s Resident Artist Opera Series

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Guild Hall and Bel Canto Boot Camp’s new Resident Artist Series kicks off on Friday, May 20 with tenor Jack Swanson and soprano Katherine Henly along with BCBC’s Rachelle Jonck and Derrick Goff at the piano. The opera program will feature a solid dose of bel canto classics, including excerpts from Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amoreand Don Pasquale, as well as songs by Rossini and Bellini. Gilbert and Sullivan will provide a stroll through bel canto in English with excerpts from their much beloved Pirates of Penzance. The diverse program will also explore the use of the classically trained voice in music from the 40s and 50s, and visit American opera (Kurt Weill’s Street Scene), musical theater (Kiss Me, Kate and My Fair Lady) and cinema (The Toast of New Orleans).
