"Desperate Divas" featured at March 2019 Meeting
At the March 28, 2019 monthly Opera Club meeting, Maestro Bill Doherty and the Central Florida Lyric Opera Company presented a program entitled "Desperate Divas" with selections on the somber, or even sad, side.

Angela Jonas, Michelle Struhar, and Mariangel Cestari were our three divas, with Bill Doherty's usual fantastic piano accompaniment.  The program began with a couple of selections from Mozart's "Le Nozze di Figaro."  From there it was Puccini, with Mimi's farewell aria from the fourth act of "La Boheme," Cio-Cio-San's longing for the return of her husband in "Madama Butterfly," and Floria Tosca's famous aria "Visi d'Arte."

​Rounding out the program were selections from Verdi's "La Traviata," Catalani's "La Wally."  Cilea's opera "Adriana Lecouvreur" and others.  The evening concluded with a spoof on the "Three Tenors" with our three divas combining on Musetta's Waltz from "La Boheme."
