Revered by The New York Times for his “ardor, richness and power,” renowned New York City Metropolitan Opera tenor Matthew Polenzani will perform at Assumption College on Saturday, March 17, in the Jeanne Y. Curtis Performance Hall in the Tsotsis Family Academic Center.
Polenzani will present an evening of international music, including selections from operas, operettas, music theater, and Italian and Neapolitan songs. Assumption College’s Chorale will perform a variety of songs with Polenzani.
Polenzani has a vast-ranging repertory, includes La clemenza di Tito, Werther, Les Contes d’Hoffmann, La traviata, Roméo et Juliette, Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Don Giovanni, Don Pasquale, Il barbiere di Siviglia and Die Zauberflöte. Polenzani has performed in celebrated opera houses across the world, including the Lyric Opera of Chicago, San Francisco Opera, Royal Opera House, and the Opernhaus Zurich. Next year, he will serve as guest artist with the Monteverdi Tuscany Festival in Siena, Italy.
