The poor baritones!
They complain that they rarely get to play the hero –
that’s mostly left to the tenor.

Take a vocal ride down the scale from the Lyric Baritone to the Cavalier Baritone, the Noble Baritone, Character Baritone, Verdi Baritone, Dramatic Baritone or Heldenbaritone.

Enjoy an audiovisual potpourri of operatic baritones in each voice category, illustrated with arias and scenes by famous singers of the past and present.

Erika Reitshamer

The speaker will be Erika Reitshamer, long-time board member of the New England Opera Club and well-known for her captivating tributes to great opera singers. Her last offering at Newton Library was  “What Makes a Great Tenor?” in June 2016.

Free and open to the public - come and enjoy and bring some friends!
