Orchestre symphonique de Montréal presents

Verdi & the great operatic choruses

The cradle of opera, Italy has given birth to many great vocal works, and in this concert’s part one, relish some of the finest Italian opera arias with soprano Marianne Fiset. Then let yourself be conquered by the expressive power of Verdi’s music with the OSM Chorus and bass singer Alexander Tsymbalyuk. Romanticism and emotion: a rendezvous not to be missed!
