Verdi’s Greatest Hits

Verdi image with borderIn January, the Choral Society will join the SB Symphony, under the baton of Maestro Nir Kabaretti, for a celebration of Verdi’s greatest opera hits. During this 200th anniversary of Verdi’s birth, what musical season would be complete without a performance of favorites! Maestro Kabaretti has carefully selected talented soloists– Angel Joy Blue, Soprano and John Pickle, Tenor–to complement the full symphony orchestra and chorus for some of Verdi’s greatest overtures, choruses, and arias from Rigoletto to Traviata to Aida. And the Santa Barbara Symphony and Opera Santa Barbara will join in providing educational experience for members of the community. It’s a program filled with emotion, passion and excitement! Whether you are an opera fan or not, you will love Verdi.  The evening’s repertoire includes:
