Rigoletto In Concert

Sunday, April 10, 2022, 3pm

In the 19th Century, when Giuseppe Verdi wrote his opera Rigoletto, many operas resembled The Wizard of Oz, with very good 'good guys,' very bad 'bad guys,' and of course, lots of great melodies. However, Rigoletto is more like the 2003 musical Wicked, which reworked the Oz characters into more complicated people, neither fully evil nor fully good. Like Elphaba from Wicked, Rigoletto is a complex protagonist: he makes questionable moral choices, but we sympathize with him because of the suffering he endures. There are three main characters in Rigoletto. The Duke of Mantua is the powerful local ruler, a handsome young man who uses his money and power to seduce women. Rigoletto is a hunchbacked jester who works as a cynical comedian for the Duke. Gilda is Rigoletto's innocent, sheltered teenage daughter, who longs to experience love. A QPAC "in concert" premiere!

A Toast To Steve & Eydie

Sunday, April 24, 2022, 3pm

Before there was Beyoncé and Jay Z, or Sonny and Cher, there was a couple whose solo careers were magnificent, but on tour together there were no other performers who could thrill an audience the way they did. Over the course of their forty-plus year career together, entertainers Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gormé left an indelible impression on popular music in America. Although each an accomplished vocalist in their own right, they are most widely recognized for their duets. Steve and Eydie were the recipients of many professional honors, including multiple Emmy and Grammy Awards. Celebrating the music of Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gormé, with songs like This Could Be The Start Of Something Big, Besame Mucho, Sentimental Journey, Our Love Is Here To Stay, is their son David Lawrence, and Tony Award winner Debbie Gravitte!
