David-Bek on Saturday Night at the Opera

Saturday, November 15, 2014 - 9:00pm to Sunday, November 16, 2014 - 1:00am

Don't miss a rare opportunity to hear Armen Tigranyan's final opera David-Bek. Although his earlier opera Anoush is considered the quintessential Armenian folk opera, David-Bek presents Tigranyan as a true master of choral and orchestral music, all while incorporating Armenian musical influences into his own writing. The featured recording was its very first, with an all-star Armenian cast including the "Armenian Nightingale," Gohar Gasparyan. Stepan Atamian hosts.
