This Concert will be a Night to Remember

There are lots of reasons why our Puccini celebration is going to be amazing. Here are five of them:

1. Mr. Giacomo Puccini

What more can we say? Puccini's enduring works are among the most performed and beloved operas in the repertory—with Tosca, Turandot, Madama Butterfly, and La Boheme topping the list. In this one-night-only concert, we'll hear the best of the best and celebrate the legacy of this truly beautiful music. 

2. To weep, laugh, swoon. Experience the power of opera.

Opera is visceral and packs an emotional wallop. You will feel the powerful vibrations of the human voice in your body. If a singer hits the right note you’ll get chills.

3. Hear the Portland Opera chorus and orchestra in their full glory.

We love to celebrate the talented musicians that make up Portland Opera's chorus and orchestra. Experience the richness and power as they take the stage along with guest soloists soprano Jacqueline Piccolino, baritone Joshua Jeremiah, and tenor Anthony Kalil all making their debuts on the Keller stage. Beloved returning artist, mezzo-soprano Hannah Penn will join the ensemble.  

4. To try opera or introduce it to a friend. 

This is the perfect opera introduction—it's short (90 minutes, just about the length of a movie), fun, and full of recognizable music and cultural touchstones that are amazing to experience live. 

5. To have an excuse to get fancy and enjoy a fun night out.

Treat yourself, enjoy date night, or maybe celebrate Mother's Day a day early?  Puccini: In Concert is the perfect Saturday night in Portland for inspiration, gathering, and beautiful music.
