Building on themes explored in this summer's production of The Consul, Opera Saratoga presents a special concert featuring music by refugee composers - artists who had to flee from their home countries due to religious or political persecution. Opera and song by Gaetano Donizetti, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Darius Milhaud, Paul Hindemith, Erich Koorngold, Irving Berlin, Béla Bartók, and Kurt Weill will be highlighted during this free event. Presented in partnership with the Department of Music and the Massry Center for the Arts at the College of St. Rose.
Ellen sings Rachmaninoff's "U moyego okna (Before my Window)," Op. 26, No. 10, with pianist Djordje Nesic.
