    ArtWeek Boston: Explore the Score with David Angus

    Come join Boston Lyric Opera (BLO) at the Boston Public Library for an afternoon of opera with David Angus, BLO’s Music Director and Conductor. Mr. Angus conducts orchestras and choirs all over Europe, including the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Wexford Festival Opera, and is a former Music Director for Glimmerglass Opera Festival. In this special presentation, Mr. Angus explores the score of Bellini’s bel canto gem, I Puritani, including its famous tour de force soprano arias, and provides special insight into the score for the opera-goer and the opera-curious. I Puritani opens at the Shubert Theatre on May 2, 2014.

    This event is part of BLO’s “Opera at the Boston Public Library” series.
