Opera... From a Sistah's Point of View

Angela Brown personifies the ideal American dramatic soprano: sheer vocal power; luxurious finesse; shimmering, high pianissimos; and a charming personality larger than life. Her highly successful Metropolitan Opera debut in 2004 as Verdi’s Aida sparked rave reviews and spawned her operatic career. Through this witty and inspired recital program, Brown brings awareness of opera and classical vocal performance to diverse audiences, demystifying the genre through lively commentary on opera plots and characters, show-stopping arias, poignant art songs and moving spirituals.

This program is generously supported by Helen and Peter Bing.
