LOVE SONGS FROM HOME AND HEART
Rising Irish soprano Claudia Boyle spans two centuries of operatic writing at its most thrilling, from the elegant poise of Handel via Verdi's heartfelt and heart-breaking Caro nome, the pristine French effusiveness of Ambrose Thomas, thrilling coloratura courtesy of Mozart, and impassioned pleading from Bellini, to a deliciously tongue-in-cheek show-stopper bursting with fun and vocal fireworks by West Side Story composer Leonard Bernstein. Dvorák's gorgeous, tune-filled Eighth Symphony serves up a characterful and picturesque love song to his Bohemian homeland.
