Saturday May 19th - The Silver Bell by Camille Saint-Saens

Tonight's opera comes from the Opera Comique in Paris for a performance of The Silver Bell by Saint-Saens.

The production stars soprano Helene Guilmette as Helene, Jodie Devos is Rosa, Tassis Christoyannis is Dr Spiridion, tenor Edgaras Montvidas is Conrad and Yu Shao sings Benedict. Francois-Xavier Roth conducts Les Siecles and Accentus Chorus. (Tonight's opera comes from the Opera Comique in Paris for a performance of The Silver Bell by Saint-Saens.
