The Collegiate Chorale presents Rossini’s Moïse et Pharaon . This opera-in-concert presentation will feature Rossini’s lavish French-language version of 1827 replete with romance, intrigue, vengeance, and acts of God as Moses leads the Jews out of the land of Pharaoh and into freedom, by way of the plagues and the parting of the Red Sea. The story is impassioned and the music is gorgeous. Guest artists include James Morris, Kyle Ketelsen, Angela Meade, Eric Cutler, and Marina Rebeka, with the American Symphony Orchestra. James Bagwell will conduct.
Single tickets start at $25 and are available online at carnegiehall.org, by phone through Carnegie Charge at (212) 247-7800 or in person at the Carnegie Hall Box Office.
