Star soprano Anna Caterina Antonacci joins us for this concert that opens both our 2012-2013 concert season and the Queens, Heroines and Ladykillers series.  She sings three arias, spanning three different musical eras, including an aria by Cherubini made famous by Maria Callas, and a touching yet powerful aria by Berlioz. Also in the programme is Gluck’s viscerally thrilling Dance of the Furies and Bizet’s fresh and uninhibited Symphony in C.
