Travel Tip: Classical Music in United States
An Evening of Zarzuela and Latin American Music

An Evening of Zarzuela and Latin American Music
LOS ANGELES  •  LA Opera  •  Ongoing

General Director Plácido Domingo, whose parents were celebrated singers of zarzuela — the popular Spanish form of operetta — will perform as both singer and as conductor, leading the LA Opera Orchestra.

The soloists include soprano Janai Brugger, whose recent appearances include her Metropolitan Opera debut as Liu in Turandot and Musetta in La Bohème with LA Opera. Ms. Brugger is a former member of LA Opera’s Domingo-Thornton Young Artist Program who in 2012 won three top awards at Operalia, the international vocal competition founded by Mr. Domingo. She will be joined by tenor Joshua Guerrero, a first-year member of the Domingo-Thornton Young Artist Program, and by Uruguayan soprano María Antúnez, a 2011 Operalia semi-finalist who will create the title role in LA Opera’s May 2013 world premiere of Dulce Rosa by Lee Holdridge. Portions of the concert will be conducted by Spanish conductor Jordi Bernacer. The concert will be followed by the 15th annual Plácido Domingo Award presentation to soprano Ailyn Pérez.
