Operetta Around the World

Friday 28 October 2022 from 18:30 to 22:00

Join us for a unique and memorable evening! We are so excited to offer a curated mix of operetta and opera offerings from different corners of the world: lush Viennese operetta, energetic French operetta, entertaining Zarzuela, and rare Arabic opera. You will even hear a few hit tunes from the operatic repertoire!

Location: Embassy of Egypt - 3521 International Court Northwest Washington, DC 20008

We have handpicked a cast of our very own WOS stellar singers, the very best in this repertoire. For the French and German repertoire, we are delighted to host two emerging stars: Alexandra Razskazoff, 2022 Metropolitan Opera Competition winner and Anna Kelly, 2022 Metropolitan Opera Competition semifinalist. Gustavo Ahualli and Israel Lozano will be reprising the Zarzuela repertoire from their recent triumph at the Kennedy Center. And for the first time in the history of the company, we will be presenting an excerpt of Arabic opera, performed by Egyptian-American soprano, Fairouz Foty. Maestro Julien Benichou will lead the wonderful WOS orchestra with his passionate and artful conducting.

The performance will begin at 7:15pm followed by a dessert reception. Doors open at 6:30pm.
