Met Guild to Honor Licia Albanese & Carlo Bergonzi in 'INCOMPARABLE' in 2015

Dec 21, 2014 339

Summer saw the passing of two of opera's most iconic figures: Licia Albanese, at the age of 105, and Carlo Bergonzi, at 90. They performed together at the Met only five times, but whenever and wherever they sang, the two were both "incomparable" (Chicago Tribune*); fittingly, the next in the Metropolitan Opera Guild's series of tributes to legendary singers is "INCOMPARABLE: A Celebration of Licia Albanese and Carlo Bergonzi."

Hosted by Opera News Award-winning soprano Patricia Racette, this special event will take place at New York City's Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College on Friday, March 13, at 7:30pm.
