Opera in the Heights presents ConciertOh! de Invierno
Opera in the Heights will present ConciertOh! de Invierno, a special holiday music concert series in Spanish highlighting some of Oh!’s most outstanding Hispanic artists in a way that allows them to show off different styles of music. ConciertOh! de Invierno will feature traditional zarzuelas, boleros, and música navideña (Christmas music) that have broad appeal. (Zarzuela is a Spanish lyric dramatic opera genre alternating between spoken and sung scenes, and bolero is slow tempo Latin music).
Oh!’s sensational singers participating in the concert series are Claudia Chapa, Octavio Moreno, and James Rodriguez, with guest appearances by Arnold Yzaguirre, Brian Suits, and Patrick Contreras. Oh! subscribers will recognize Chapa, Moreno and Rodriguez, who have most recently portrayed Madame Flora/Baba in The Medium (Chapa); Rigoletto in Rigoletto (Moreno) and Tonio in I Pagliacci (Rodriguez).
ConciertOh! de Invierno will last approximately 90 minutes, with an intermission and concessions featuring sweet treats, coffee and cocoa provided by Oh!’s guild members. The music appeals to all ages and makes a perfect family outing in the midst of the holiday season.
