The Women’s Board of the Dallas Opera organized a splendid “Toast to Graeme Jenkins” to mark the beginning of his final season as our music director. This marks the Maestro’s 20th season with TDO, so there were plenty of musical memories. I thought it was interesting that the Chorus chose to honor him with a beautiful rendition of one of Verdi’s greatest: “Va pensiero” from “Nabucco.”
Get all the details here from Jeanne Prejean at MY SWEET CHARITY.
