Don’t miss Matthew Polenzani’s Texas Debut
Tickets are now on sale for the latest installment of The Dallas Opera’s Robert E. and Jean Ann Titus Art Song Recital Series. Phenomenal American tenor, Matthew Polenzani, will headline this exclusive, one-time-only recital 2PM, Sunday, January 11, 2015 at Southern Methodist University’s Caruth Auditorium (in the Owen Arts Center, 6101 Bishop, Dallas, TX 75205). The recital will also feature the exciting and accomplished playing of Mr. Polenzani’s frequent recording partner, pianist Julius Drake.
Polenzani has been astounding audiences at New York’s Metropolitan Opera and around the world in recent years with his expressive musicality and passionate performances, prompting Opera News to write: “Few singers today command the sheer beauty of timbre and dynamic control of Matthew Polenzani.” The New York Times’ Anthony Tommasini noted: “A born lyric tenor, he has been branching into heavier repertory that requires vocal heft and carrying power…honeyed sound, melting pianissimos…sublime.”
This recital marks Polenzani’s hotly anticipated Texas debut.
Seating is limited but through the generosity of the Titus Family, all tickets are just $25. Seating is general admission; there are no reserved seats.
This recital series was created just last year to showcase well-established artists in programs dedicated to preserving the fine art of “art song.” At the time, Dallas Opera Executive Committee Member Sarah Titus explained, the series “was created by our family to honor my parents’ lifetime commitment to the arts in Dallas, as well as their history of giving to the Dallas Opera.”
