Less than a month to go before the Cal Poly Symphony will be joined by soprano Ciera Lamborn and tenor Christopher Campbell in a performance of some of the greatest opera music ever written!
Our Fall Concert, “Symphony at the Opera,” will begin with three orchestral works: Wagner’s overture to Die Meistersinger, Rossini’s overture to The Barber of Seville and Saint-Saëns’ “Danse Bacchanale” from Samson and Dalilah.
Both guest artists will then perform solo arias from Puccini operas. Lamborn will sing “Vissi d’arte” from Tosca, and Campbell will sing one of opera’s best-known tenor arias: “Nessun dorma!” from Turandot. After intermission, the guest artists will perform the first act of Puccini’s La Bohème, from the moment when the two lovers, Mimì and Rodolfo, meet.
