Soprano Michelle Areyzaga: “The Killer B’s: Brahms, Barber, Bernstein & Beyond”
November 14, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
As a coveted performer with a diverse repertoire, American soprano Michelle Areyzaga (alongside her pianist and collaborator Dana Brown) is held in high regard by orchestras and opera companies throughout the United States and abroad. Music critic Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune has said that she is “blessed with a radiant and all-encompassing soprano.” For this special performance at Barrington’s White House, she will perform the music of Brahms, Barber, Bernstein, Berlioz, and more, including Barber’s Knoxville Summer of 1915 and Bernstein’s I Hate Music, So Pretty, My House (Peter Pan), A Little Bit In Love (Wonderful Town), Ain’t Got No Tears (On the Town), Glitter and Be Gay (Candide).
Areyzaga has performed operatic roles with New York City Opera in Telemann’s Orpheus as well as in their VOX series and has appeared in leading roles with Chicago Opera Theater, Lyric Opera of Chicago’s In the Neighborhoods programs, Ravinia Festival, Opera Birmingham, and Orquesta Sinfónica del Estado de México.
Michelle Areyzaga’s association with the music of Leonard Bernstein runs deep. She has become well-known for her interpretation of his delightful and moving music – from her portrayal of Cunegonde in Candide to her participation in varied programs featuring his works, including musical theater and chamber music/recital works.
