DEARBORN, Michigan – Artists from the Bellini Opera Theatre will give a free presentation on Italian opera in the Henry Ford Centennial Library Auditorium at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 17. Those who attend the lecture and performance will catch a glimpse of the Golden Age of Italian Opera.
The one-hour presentation, titled Lecture and Performance on the Golden Age of Italian Opera from Claudio Monteverdi 1567-1643 to Giacomo Puccini 1858-1924, will include performances by soprano Eva Evola and baritone Dino Valle. The presentation is sponsored by the Friends of the Library-Dearborn (FOLD).
Bellini Opera was founded by opera enthusiast Roslino Lo Duca, a native of Cinisi in the province of Palermo, out of his deep love for the Sicilian customs and language and his passion for music of Vincenzo Bellini.
Co-founder Dino Valle hopes to foster the enjoyment of operatic music for today’s audience through a series of concerts, recitals, lectures and other out-reach programs in Michigan and Florida.
In addition to the November concert, the Theatre will present A Classical Spirit of Christmas at 7 p.m. on Thursday, December 15.
The Henry Ford Centennial Library is at 16301 Michigan Avenue in Dearborn. For more information, call 313.943.2330.
