Baritones UnBound: Celebrating the UnCommon Voice of the Common Man
Presented by ArtsEmerson
October 8 - October 20, 2013
ArtsEmerson:The World On Stage presents Baritone Unbound: Celebrating the UnCommon Voice of the Common Man. In this brand new musical event conceived by Broadway leading man Marc Kudisch, three dynamite baritones take the stage to give us a captivating musical tour of the baritone voice throughout history. Veteran singers Merwin Foard and Jeff Mattsey join Kudisch in an illuminating performance studded with classics from Broadway, opera and beyond. From Gregorian chants to well-known arias (“Ah persempre,” “Largo”) including show tunes (“I am a Pirate King,” “Oh What a Beautiful Morning,” “Pretty Women”) and popular music (“It Was a Very Good Year,” “It’s Now or Never”), Back to Baritone: An Unauthorized History In Song is a celebration of the baritone voice and its emergence as the revolutionary sound of the common man in one enchanted evening ringing with music, laughter and showmanship.
