Tuesday, January 31, 7:00pm | Whitsell Auditorium, Portland Art Museum

 

Enjoy an unforgettable evening of Mozart, Poulenc and Rachmaninov when the spotlight shines on soprano LINDSAY OHSE in her first Portland Opera Studio Artists Recital.  These Studio Artists recitals are the perfect opportunity to get to know the voices of our talented young artists in an intimate setting where the audience experiences the close relationship between composer, singer and accompanist.  Portland Opera Associate Music Director ROBERT AINSLEY will accompany Ms. Ohse.
 

Described as “sparkling” by Opera News, Lindsay Ohse has already won the hearts of Portland audiences as Barabina in the Company’s recent The Marriage of Figaro and as featured artist in the first ever Big Night gala concert. This season she will sing the role of Maria Celeste in Portland Opera’s new production of Philip Glass’ Galileo Galilei, as well as Maria in Wichita Grand Opera’s La Fille du Regiment and Constance in Dialogues of the Carmelites with Des Moines Metro Opera.

(Portland, Ore) – Portland Opera is pleased to announce Puccini’s goldmine of unforgettable musical moments, Madame Butterfly,  opening February 3 at Keller Auditorium with additional performances on February 5m,9 and 11, 2012.  Tickets, beginning at $20 can be purchased at the Portland Opera box office and Ticketmaster outlets. 

 

Madame Butterfly reflects the opening of Asia to the Western World,” says Portland Opera General Director Christopher Mattaliano, “and therefore fits perfectly with this season’s theme of When Our World Changes.  The opera resonates today,” he continues, “because it is a very human work of deeply felt characters.  Cio-Cio-San is one of the richest characters in all of opera, and Butterfly Puccini’s greatest work.”

 

Portland Opera's Marriage of Figaro Cast Participates In #askavocalist

To celebrate the start of National Opera Week, the entire cast of The Marriage of Figaro will participate in a world-wide Twitter event called #askavocalist during rehearsal tonight. 

 

Twitter followers can ask any question of our cast between 7p-10p.  We will solicit answers from our principle singers, chorus and studio artists - basically whoever is off stage at the time and wants to respond.  Their answers will be posted from Portland Opera's twitter account.  The tweet will attribute whichever singer answers, so followers know who is responding.  For Twitter fans who specifically want to hear from Portland Opera singers, make sure to use the hash tag #askavocalist, as well as tagging @portlandopera.

 

Follow us on Twitter to join in the fun!

 

About #askavocalist:

The concept is simple: vocalists (sopranos, mezzos, tenors, baritones, basses, and yes, countertenors and contraltos) make time available to answer questions on Friday, October 28; Twitter followers tweet their burning questions and the musicians answer. It is an opportunity to connect musicians with their audience and share the stories of their musical love and passion, 140 characters at a time. The conversations between fans and musicians can be followed on Twitter by using the hash tag #askavocalist
