The rest of the pieces are duets or trios: “Cinque … dieci” and “Crudel perque finora” from “Le Nozze di Figaro” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; “We are Warriors Three” from “Princess Ida” by Arthur Sullivan; “Per queste tue manine” from “Don Giovanni” by Mozart; “Schelm, halt fest” from “Der Freischütz” by Carl Maria von Weber; and “Alle prove venga avanti” from “Il Turco in Italia” by Gioachino Rossini.
Guest director Jessica Sakal is this year’s stage director, and Ward Jamison will accompany the singers.
The performance is free and open to the public, and balcony seating is available.
