Opera selections will be performed by rising opera stars from the Metropolitan Opera Lindemann Young Artist Development Program in a vocal program drawn from opera favorites, reflective of the experience and atmospherics within Persian gardens — their shade, fragrance, textures and colors of plantings, the interplay of water and light, and the songs of birds in the trees. Concert developed by Dona D. Vaughn, Artistic Director, Maine Opera, and Robert Sirota, Music Director. The program will feature the World Premiere of “Hafez Songs based on the Poems of Hafez”, Robert Sirota, Composer, commissioned by Palladium Musicum, Inc. for the occasion.
