The Festival’s Italian Opera Night invites two opera stars to our stage: Kara Shay Thomson, Soprano, and Jonathan Burton, Tenor. Together they have sung Puccini’s Turandot, Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana, and Puccini’s Tosca at major opera companies throughout the United States. During this wonderful evening, they will sing their roles from these three operas and much more including Norma, Rigoletto, Don Carlos, and Ballo in Maschera. Joined by Festival favorites Renée Rapier, Mezzo, and Trevor Neal, Baritone, this will be a night to remember as this incredible cast sings arias, duets, and ensembles from the greatest Italian operas.

Artists: Ilya Kazantsev (Piano), Jonathan Burton (tenor), Kara Shay Thompson (Soprano), Renee Rapier (Mezzo-Soprano), Suzanna Laramee (Piano), Trevor Neal (Baritone)
