If music is food for the soul, then the Yale Opera will be offering audiences
a soulful variety pack Friday-Saturday, Nov. 2-3.
The troupe will present its annual “Two Evenings of Opera Scenes” program
at 8 p.m. both nights in Sprague Memorial Hall, corner of College and Wall streets.
Each evening will feature a different program of music selected from a variety
of popular operas. These will include Bellini’s “I Puritani,” Massenet’s “Don
Quichotte” and Rossini’s “Il Barbiere Di Siviglia” on
Friday night, and Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin,” Martinu’s “Comedy
on the Bridge” and Donizetti’s “L’elisir D’amore” on
Saturday night. Subtitles will be employed for all scenes not sung in English.
Yale Opera, under the artistic direction of Doris Yarick-Cross, is part of the
Yale School of Music. The program has been hailed as America’s foremost
training ground for young singers

for “Two Evenings of Opera Scenes.” He is a resident at the Lyric
Opera of Chicago where he has worked on nearly 20 productions since 1995. He
also has a decade-long association with the Los Angeles Opera. Along with directing
