Tenor Adrian Kramer and soprano Lucia Cesaroni are partners in art and in life. If the name of the tenor is familiar, it's because he was a member of the Canadian Opera Company Ensemble Studio a few years ago - as a baritone. After his tenure at the COC Ensemble, Kramer has reworked his voice and is now a tenor. Lucia Cesaroni's lyric soprano is also well known to Canadian opera lovers. I recall hearing her at Opera York, and she has appeared with Opera in Concert as well as other organizations. You can find out more about her at http://luciacesaroni.com/
The two artists will be joined by Jennifer Nichols, Justin De Bernardi, and Maika'l Nash in a recital at the Extension Room on Eastern Avenue in downtown Toronto on November 13 8 pm. On the program are works by Mascagni, Verdi, Arvo Part, Stravinsky, Bernstein, Poulenc, as well as Neapolitan Songs.
