Program notes

Bands of brothers striving toward glory, fighting a battle in which there can be only one champion. While this might sound like the high drama of the opera stage, it also describes one of sports’ biggest events: the FIFA World Cup! At the Gala Concert, the spectacular worlds of opera and football come together for a musical evening featuring some of the biggest stars of the international stage!
