Yale Opera presents an evening of Russian song Dec. 4

December 3, 2012


Yale Opera and the Yale School of Music present Liederabend, the German word for “evening of song,” on Tuesday, December 4 at 8 pm.

The concert will feature the singers of Yale Opera in a selection of Russian folk tunes and art songs by composers from Rimsky-Korsakov and Borodin to Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, and Kabalevsky. Also on the program are selections by lesser-known composers such as Shebalin and Tariverdiev.

The concert, which is free and open to the public, takes place in Morse Recital Hall in Sprague Hall (470 College Street, New Haven).

The Yale Opera program is led by artistic director Doris Yarick-Cross. Faculty pianist Emily Olin is coaching the singers in the repertoire and Russian language, and will accompany the singers on this program.
