Nothing says “drama” like Italian opera - and while vocal arias may be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of composers like Verdi, Puccini, and Rossini, they poured some of their most breathtakingly beautiful melodies into the orchestral music they created for their operas. In this concert, Music Director Juraj Valčuha and the orchestra share a treasure trove of overtures and interludes from Madama Butterfly, Macbeth, and more, capped off by Rossini’s famous William Tell Overture.
