A Song of Nesting Birds

When folklorist Cecil Sharp came to North Carolina to collect ballads, he found a treasure trove in Madison County, which he called "A Nest of Singing Birds." Today, NC's Appalachian Mountains are widely recognized for a long-standing, unbroken tradition of ballad singing. Many traditional ballad singers live in rural counties in western NC, and it is a rare and special occasion for audiences in the Piedmont to hear this art form performed live. North Carolina ballad singers Sheila Kay Adams, Bobby McMillon, Donna Ray Norton, and Joe Penland, along with musician and master of ceremonies Laura Boosinger, will share a night of songs and stories in a ballad circle format - the musicians will all share the stage together.

Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2

The beauty of Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2 is brought to life by Stephen Hough, one of the most distinguished pianists of our time. This immense concerto is paired with Schubert’s Symphony No. 4, which seems to suspend time with its long-arching melodies and surprising twists and turns.

Pagliacci

Canio and his wife Nedda lead a band of traveling carnival players in late 19th-Century Southern Italy. They are the live, in-person social media of the day, greeted with wild cheers wherever they go. On the stage, Canio plays the clown, but beneath his makeup boils a troubled and jealous soul. When Canio suspects his wife has taken a lover, he explodes during a performance and, in full view of a stunned audience, stops at nothing to learn the truth. The show and reality become one, with tragic, shocking results. 
 
Based on a true story,¬†Pagliacci¬†features one the greatest tenor arias of all time, ‚ÄúVesti la¬†giubba,‚Ä̬†and this production stars NCO returning artists¬†Carl Tanner¬†(Samson and Delilah),¬†Melinda Whittington¬†(Cold Mountain),¬†Takaoki Onishi¬†(Carmen¬†2019), and the NCO Orchestra and chorus all conducted by¬†Keitaro Harada¬†(Carmen¬†2019).
 
Pagliacci, an opera in a prologue and two acts, generously sponsored by Ross Lampe, Jr. and is sung in Italian with projected English translations.
