The Dallas Opera is thrilled to present the internationally acclaimed American soprano Angel Blue, accompanied by renowned South African pianist James Baillieu, in this season’s Robert E. and Jean Ann Titus Art Song Recital on Jan. 26 at 2 p.m. in Moody Performance Hall at the AT&T Performing Arts Center. The dazzling Blue, who triumphed in her season-opening star turn at New York’s Metropolitan Opera this fall, will perform a recital program consisting of songs, arias and romanzas by Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Jake Heggie, Ruperto Chapí and Richard Strauss — as well a favorite spiritual or two.
This one-time-only performance is generously underwritten by the Titus Family to honor and support their parents’ love of art songs through live, public performances featuring many of the finest interpreters on stage today. Tickets for the Sunday afternoon Titus Art Song Recital are $15 to $25 and can be purchased online at dallasopera.org, or, by calling The Dallas Opera Ticket Office at 214-443-1000.
