Opera Carolina / Actor's Theatre
Part 1 Opera Carolina Performs Aleko and Pagliacci
It’s an Opera Carolina double-header: two operas hit the stage this week in Charlotte-- back to back with similar themes, but by different composers. We hear about Aleko and Pagliacci and from the lead in Pagliacci who sings the world over but is making his Carolina debut. Ironically, he lives in Rock Hill. We’ll discuss that and much more.
