Opening Night: Bon Appetit!
About Opening Night: Bon Appetit!
Acclaimed bass-baritone Ryan McKinny brings his magnetic presence to Poulenc’s marvelously absurd "Le bal masqué." Mesmerizing last season in "Vienna 1900: In the Garden of Dreams," soprano Abigail Fischer portrays Julia Child in Lee Hoiby’s comic operatic take on the unflappable chef’s 1970’s television program. Stellar musicians join the renowned Imani Winds for a quintessential Da Camera evening of surprise and musical adventure.
