Metropolitan Opera stars join our Verdi Bicentennial festivities with music from his powerful setting of Shakespeare’s drama. From Othello’s exalted entrance and Iago’s evil Credo to Desdemona’s Willow Song and tragic end, Verdi’s music sweeps us through storms of emotion and operatic intrigue. Plus rarely heard sacred music and a brilliant showstopper for clarinet and orchestra. Keith Clark conducts. Program: Verdi’s Laudi Alla Vergine Maria from Four Sacred Pieces and Concert Fantasia On Themes From Rigoletto. Arranged for Clarinet and Orchestra by Luigi Bassi. Mark Dubac, Clarinet. Verdi’s Otello Highlights from Acts I, II and III, Otello — Allan Glassman (Metropolitan Opera); Desdemona — Ruth Ann Swenson (Metropolitan Opera); Iago — Richard Zeller (Metropolitan Opera).
