Making their United States debut, the Four Italian Tenors will perform an evening of operatic tenor hits at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 12, 2019, at Armstrong Auditorium to begin the 2019-20 Performing Arts Series.
“This group represents some of the finest talent in the newest generation of world-class tenors,” Armstrong Auditorium Concert Manager Ryan Malone said. “We are thrilled to have these vocal powerhouses launch Armstrong’s 2019-20 season.”
In a program titled Viva Italia — a salute to four great Italian tenors Enrico Caruso, Mario Lanza, Luciano Pavarotti and Andrea Bocelli — the quartet presents an extraordinary program of the most famously beloved Italian opera arias and songs, fusing Italian wit and charm with romanticism, lyricism and dramatic flair. Viva Italia includes tenor hits from favorite composers such as Puccini, Rossini, Verdi, Donizetti and more. This performance is part of the inaugural U.S. tour for this young new Italian grouping.
Tickets to the Four Italian Tenors begin at $31 for balcony seating and $71 for orchestra seating. For more information about ticket options, subscriptions, group rates or current exhibits, please visit Armstrong Auditorium’s websiteor call the box office.
