You are invited to attend a performance of Vincenzo Bellini’s beautiful opera “I Capuleti e i Montecchi” (the Romeo and Juliet story) which will take place at the GW Lisner Auditorium, 21st and H St. NW in DC at 6:00 pm on Sunday, September 28, 2014.
Concert opera is a form in which the singers are at the front of the stage and perform in Italian (with English supertitles) with the full orchestra and chorus behind them (conducted by Antony Walker.) There is an excellent cast consisting of Olga Peretyatko as Giulietta, Kate Lindsey as Romeo, and David Portillo, Jeffrey Beruan, and Liam Moran. (Click to view a poster for the event.)
The Washington Concert Opera believes (and we agree) that this is a great opportunity to experience the Italian language in a truly beautiful way – through opera. We want to cultivate a love for the Italian language and introduce as many people as possible to the wonderful world of opera. We encourage our students and staff to take advantage of this unique offer.
Tickets normally range from $40.00 – $110.00, but the WCO would like to offer the ICS special DISCOUNT TICKETS OF ONLY $15.00….that’s cheaper than a movie!
