The trio, conducted by Maestro Montanaro, will sing a selection of Opera’s most memorable moments from Turandot, Pagliacci, Werther, L’elisir d’amore, Fedora, Eugene Onegin and La Gioconda. The program will also include an American Song medley and unforgettable songs from some of the finest productions of the twentieth-century musical stage.

“Maestro Montanaro and these incredibly gifted tenors have come together in the prime of their careers to create an unforgettable evening of poignant and passionate performances,” explains Ian Derrer, The Kern Wildenthal General Director and CEO. “The trio will perform highlights from the opera repertoire that have made them world famous, as well as audience favorites that originated under the bright lights of Broadway. “It’s easy to see why true opera lovers are willing to travel long distances to experience these artists onstage, and why our patrons are already buzzing with anticipation.

“This opportunity to hear Michael Fabiano, Bryan Hymel and Matthew Polenzani, side by side,” Derrer adds, “is not likely to be repeated here in Dallas. Music lovers should take note and make the most of it!”
