Recognized as one of the most beloved musical figures of our time, the great mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade (affectionately known as ‘Flicka’ worldwide to her friends, family and legions of fans) makes her VSO debut teamed up with Samuel Ramey, the world’s foremost operatic bass-baritone.
In a concert for the ages, these two extraordinary artists at the peak of their careers perform music by Berlioz, Boito, Offenbach, Copland and Gershwin. Maestro Bramwell Tovey conducts.
A once-in-a-lifetime concert event, this evening will be a pairing of legendary artists the likes of which Lower Mainland audiences have never before seen: two of the greatest musicians of this or any era, on stage together with Maestro Bramwell Tovey and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra for one very special evening only.
