The Mississauga Symphony Orchestra (MSO) returns to the Living Arts Center (LAC) this Saturday evening with what it describes as “an enchanting evening of popular tunes from Carmen, Bohemian and La Traviata.”
Maestro Denis Mastromonaco conducts the orchestra during the April 30 performance entitled Best of MSO Operawhich begins at 8 p.m. and features special guest cast member and world-class mezzo-soprano Julie Nesrallah.
Tickets to the Hammerson Hall show cost between $40 and $65 and include underground parking. Social distancing seating options are available.
Call the LAC box office at 905-306-6000.
Joining the orchestra is a “dazzling cast of singers” which includes, in addition to Nesrallah, soprano Cristina Pisani, tenor Romulo Delgado and baritone Christopher Dunham.
Nesrallah also hosts the CBC Music show Tempo and has performed for leading opera companies, symphony orchestras, festivals and chamber music ensembles across Canada and around the world.
In July 2011, she sang God Save the Queen for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during their visit to Canada Day festivities in Ottawa.
Nesrallah is the recipient of several prestigious awards, including the Emerging Artist Award from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for her cultural contribution to the performing arts in Canada.
Carmen, Bohemian and La Traviata were each produced by the OSM as fully staged grand opera in 2017, 2018 and 2019, respectively, according to the orchestra.
The OSM, with a combination of 100 community musicians and professional section leaders, has earned the reputation of the best hybrid orchestra in Canada, according to OSM officials.
