CPCC Opera Theatre

2018-19 SEASON   

“Bel Canto and Can Belto”  A Concert of Great Singing

Friday, March 22nd @ 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 24th @ 2:30 p.m.

Halton Theatre, Overcash building, Central campus

Opposites really do attract!!  “Bel Canto” is Italian for “beautiful singing.”  Classically trained singers strive for it and it’s what their audiences come to hear.  The other side of the coin….The Art of Belting.  Musical Theatre, Rock, Gospel, Pop singers strive to sing beautifully, but also belt.  It is what their audiences come to hear.  Think Freddie Mercury and Monserrat Caballé singing Barcelona!!   It will be a GREAT NIGHT FOR  SINGING!!

“OPERA LOVERS IGNORE the current generation of CPCC Opera Theatre productions at their peril….. this was a production that deserved to play to a capacity house. Maybe by next season, word-of-mouth will catch up with the quality of opera at Halton.”(Creative Loafing review of The Marriage of Figaro by Perry Tannenbaum – May 2007)
“A phenomenal find at CPCC Opera Theatre’s The Tales of Hoffmann”
“CP’s production …..a revelation to those who have never seen Offenbach’s tuneful crowdpleaser here.”
(Excerpts from a Creative Loafing Online Review by Perry Tannenbaum of CPCC Opera Theatre’s production of The Tales of Hoffmann—January 27, 2009)
