The concert was fabulous! The Washington Chorus, orchestra and soloists were superb, and the Children's Chorus of Washington was so professional with a beautiful musical performance. It is refreshing to see a large group of well-behaved children performing at this level.
An evening of gems from this well-loved and popular composer. Selections from Puccini's most popular works including Turandot, Madama Butterfly, La Bohème, Missi di Gloria, Manon Lescaut. A stellar cast of soloists join the Chorus with full orchestra for an evening of semi-staged opera classics.
