Ars Lyrica Houston presents Signature Works
Ars Lyrica’s program of Signature Works includes one of classical music’s all-time favorites plus a gloriously operatic setting of the Stabat Mater. The power of Pergolesi’s setting of this ancient hymn to the Virgin Mary, which details her lament at the cross, was evident from its first performance in 1736: it made audiences weep. A Little Night Music, by contrast, is Mozart’s most cheerful serenade.
Jay Carter will be the countertenor and Sherezade Panthaki will be the soprano for this performance.
