Lyric Music & More
It’s a very special time of year when houses all along the block are lit up and merry decorations adorn every corner. With the “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy,” Tchaikovsky was one of the first composers to use the celesta, or bell piano, to create the bright, shimmering sounds that bring to mind twinkling lights and gently falling snow. In a new video that’s part of the Ryan Opera Center at Work series, Ensemble member pianist Chris Reynolds shares his glittering rendition of this holiday classic.
Then, mark your calendars for an amazing New Year’s Eve concert starring soprano Renée Fleming and other artists, see the 2020 Rising Star honorees, solve a Holiday opera crossword puzzle, watch Lawrence Brownlee sing “Come By Here, Good Lord,” and check out our streaming picks for next week.
Happy and Prosperous New Year 2021! Your CUI team.
