Four powerhouse baritones join together to launch Opening Night of Opéra Louisiane’s 2015-2016 Season. In the elegant setting of the Old State Capitol baritones Todd Thomas, Mark Walters, Dennis Jesse, and Ivan Griffin take the stage in a rare collaboration to treat the audience to a night of soulful singing. This is our own Bayou state version of the three tenors! Special guest soprano Rachel Cobb joins the four baritones. Opéra Louisiane Artistic Director Michael Borowitz accompanies the evening featuring the best of Verdi and Leoncavallo, as well as lighter fare from Rodgers and Hammerstein and Sondheim. Seating is limited for this intimate event, so early ticket purchase is encouraged.
