Virginia Opera is back in town, presenting Gaetano Donizetti's comic opera "The Elixir of Love." The characters "develop before our very eyes in a most touching love story" and the opera contains one of the most famous tenor arias, "Ua furtiva lagrima." Kyle Lang is directing (his third production with Virginia Opera) and Adam Turner (Artistic Director) is conducting.
We’re heading to the cinema for this week’s World Music Show (2/16). So grab your over-priced popcorn, snacks and soda, or better yet, grab a lovely adult beverage and let’s sit back and checkout what to expect.
The Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale led by legendary conductor Nicholas McGegan has released a world premiere recording of Jean-Philippe Rameau's “Le Temple de la Gloire” (the 1745 original version).
The Richmond Ballet and Richmond Symphony will collaborate this coming weekend on a production of Sergei Prokofiev’s “Cinderella.”
I’m beyond excited about this week’s World Music Show (2/9) because I was lucky enough to get local Richmond Reggae musician Mighty Joshua and his band Zion #5 into the studios at WCVE Music to record a brief set.
