Opening Night Guest Artists & Repertoire
The 2013-14 season will open on Saturday, September 28th with the first Masterworks Series concert called “Operatic Love.” Guest conductor Case Scaglione, who conducted last season’s “An American Portrait” concert, returns to lead a program of opera arias and orchestral works. The guest vocalists for this concert will be soprano Suzanne Vinnik and tenor Cody Austin. They will perform works by Puccini, Verdi and Mozart from operas La bohème, La Traviata, The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni alongside orchestral works (full program details follow.)
This concert will be the first time the Las Vegas Philharmonic has performed opera repertoire in Reynolds Hall. For native Las Vegan Suzanne Vinnik the concert will mark her Las Vegas Philharmonic and her Reynolds Hall debuts and will be her first hometown performance since 2008. Suzanne, 26, has been praised by Opera News magazine for her “beautifully molded, vividly communicative phrasing.” In April she made her role and house debut as Violetta in La Traviata at Florida Grand Opera.
The opening night celebration includes a pre-concert Cocktail Party at The Smith Center at 6:00PM. Tickets are $100 per person and available now from the Las Vegas Philharmonic, phone 702.258.5438.
