2016 Metropolitan Opera Summer Recital Series Returns to Brooklyn
Jun 24, 2016 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pm| Free
The return of this series, now in its eighth season, will provide New Yorkers with free outdoor concerts from June 22 through July 13. The recitals feature top operatic talent in six free concerts presented in collaboration with City Parks Foundation.
The second recital on June 24 at 7 p.m. at Brooklyn Bridge Park, will include soprano Angel Blue—a rising star who will make her Met debut in a future season—tenor Ben Bliss, and baritone Alexey Lavrov, joined by pianist Dan Saunders. These two recitals will feature arias and duets from various operas such as Roméo et Juliette, Tosca, and Carmen, along with selections from Broadway musicals such as West Side Story and Annie Get Your Gun.
Four additional recitals in the other bureaus, again featuring Saunders, will star soprano Michelle Bradley, tenor Kang Wang, and baritone Yunpeng Wang, and will take place in July.
