Montague Visiting Artists Sat Sep 14 - Lieder, Arias & Duets

The Montague Visiting Artists Visiting Artists concert on Saturday September 14 is promising to be a wonderful occasion. Soprano Olivia Cranwell and tenor Tomas Dalton with pianist Benjamin will present a selection of arias and duets from Puccini's La Boheme and Franz Lehar's Land of Smiles. Tom will also be singing the sublime Hermit Songs, Samuel Barber's settings of poems by medieval Irish Monks, translated into English by the likes of W. H. Auden, while Olivia will perform Wagner's atmospheric Wegendonck Lieder, as well as lieder by Schumann and Richard Strauss.
