McLean Community Village Association and Washington Opera Society Cordially Invite You to Attend
Voices of Spring – A Guided Opera Dress Rehearsal
Please join McLean Community Village Association (McLeanCVA), along with their sponsor Washington Opera Society (WOS), as we welcome in the spring season with a guided opera dress rehearsal starting with Johann Strauss’ Frühlingsstimmen—literally “Voices of Spring.” Centerpiece of the show will be large ensemble pieces encompassing harmonious voices in Vicenzo Bellini’s I Puritani.
Washington Opera Society brings to the Alden Theater a cavalcade of international star singers, notably Argentine baritone Gustavo Ahualli, Mexican tenor Jesús Daniél Hernández, Egyptian-born superstar soprano Fairouz Foty, Puerto Rican mezzo Anamer Castrello, and, representing our home-grown talent, the magnificent colorotura soprano Elizabeth Treat, and young baritone Jack French.
The Washington Opera Society will be led by the incomparable and indefatigable Maestro Dr. Scott Beard, Provost of Shepherd University and resident conductor of the Washington Opera Society, conducting their string chamber quartet with a detailed and enlightening, as well as entertaining narration.
We forward to seeing you at McLean’s PREMIER cultural event of 2019!
WHEN: Sunday, April 7, 2019 at 2 PM
WHERE: Alden Theater at McLean Community Center 1234 Ingleside Avenue, McLean, VA 22101
