Opera Performance on March 7

Join us on Sunday, March 7 at 3pm for the Charleston Chamber Opera’s presentation of Whistler’s Women – Songs on a Life Well Traveled. The beautiful Gibbes rotunda will be the setting for Soprano Patrice Tiedemann, Mezzo Soprano Lara Wilson, and Baritone Paul Soper as they explore the life and loves of James Whistler with a clever mix of art song, opera, and theatrical flair. Enjoy gorgeous melodies from Debussy, Saint-Saens, Mahler, Gilbert & Sullivan, and others, as the singers portray Whistler and his women in song and verse. The hour-long program is interwoven with narration by actress Terry Bell-Aby, with piano accompaniment by musical director Steven Morris. 

Tickets at $10 for members, $20 for non-members, and advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended.  Sorry folks, this event has sold out!
