Some of the most celebrated music in opera occurs during the final acts: The Rigoletto Quartet, Colline’s aria from La bohème, “Nessun dorma” from Turandot, or “E lucevan le stelle” from Tosca. Was it the composer’s intention to place those tunes towards the end of the opera? Did it enhance the storytelling or was it designed purely to keep the audience’s attention? Join us for this installment of SongFest to hear some of your favorite arias and ensembles, and find out more about the composers' intentions!
