If These Walls Could Sing: Baroque Music and Romanelli’s Art

Like the misshapen pearls, or barroco, which provided a descriptive name for so much of the art and architecture of the 17th and 18th centuries, baroque music is lustrous, complex and glittering. Join LA Opera artists Jamie Chamberlin (soprano), Melissa Treinkman (mezzo-soprano), Nathan Granner (tenor), and pianist Tali Tadmor for a musical salon exploring the baroque operatic repertoire. Highlights include extensive selections from Dido and Aeneas by Henry Purcell. MORE INFO
