After their electrifying McCaw Hall debuts in Verdi's Il trovatore (Meade) and Nabucco (Barton), the two powerhouse performers return alongside pianist John Keene to treat Seattle audiences to a thrilling online performance. The mixed-genre program will feature a variety of favorite opera arias and rarities to showcase their unique vocal abilities.
