An Evening with Met Opera Star Christian Van Horn
Start Date: 12/7/2015Start Time: 8:00 PM
End Date: 12/7/2015

Event Description:
Hosted by David Lawton. Accompanied by Timothy Long with students from Stony Brook University's MM and DMA programs in voice

Christian Van Horn received his BA from Stony Brook University in 1998, and performed his first operatic roles with Stony Brook Opera: he sang the parts of Benoit and Alcindoro in Puccini's La Bohème. Currently he is enjoying a major international operatic career. In December he will be in New York performing the role of Colline in La Bohème at the Metropolitan Opera. He has graciously agreed to return to his alma mater as a fundraiser for Stony Brook Opera. On the first half of the program, Christian will work with three of our doctoral students in a masterclass format. After a short intermission, the evening will conclude with some performances. He will sing King Philip's heart-breaking aria "Ella giammai m'amò" from Verdi's Don Carlo and the Broadway song "Without a Song" by Vincent Youmans. In addition, he will perform with some of our advanced students the "Toreador" song from Carmen, and the opening scene from Le nozze di Figaro, including the two short duets for Figaro and Susanna, ending with Figaro's aria "Se vuol ballare." Timothy Long will accompany all the singers in this exciting evening.

Dessert reception to follow. Free admission.
