The Phoenix Opera presents three remarkable tenors—Juan Huerta, Francisco Renteria and Guillermo Ontiveros— who will entertain you with their winning personalities and astonishing voices 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7, in the Center for the Performing Arts at Paradise Valley Community College.
Separately they are all tremendous singers. Together they are a party! Each one will try to outdo the other, including a “contest of high notes” that astound and delight. They will sing all of their favorites from Italian Neapolitan and Mexican ranchera songs to the most beloved operetta and opera arias, including “La Donna e Mobile,” “Nessun Dorma,” “O Sole Mio,” “La Negra Noche,” and “Granada.”
The versatility, musicianship, passion and personalities of these young men will make for an unforgettable evening—overwhelming applause and standing ovations follow them everywhere they perform. Joining the trio is world-class soprano Anna-Lisa Hackett, who will sing duets with each tenor and dance up a storm.
Maestro John Massaro, founder of Phoenix Opera, will be the concert’s accompanist, and the evening’s mistress of ceremonies will be Phoenix Opera’s creative director Gail Dubinbaum. View excerpts from an Phoenix Opera’s Los Tres Tenores performance under the baton of Maestro John Massaro accompanied members of the Phoenix Opera Orchestra.
Phoenix’s exciting opera company is dedicated to presenting magnificent traditional operas. Audiences delight in the most beautiful voices, exquisite costumes and sensational sets! The fully restored Orpheum Theatre, the last remaining example of palace theatre architecture in Phoenix, is the home of Phoenix Opera and enhances the opera experience with its “jewel-box” setting and excellent acoustics.
Drawn from a repertoire of popular works from the late 18th through early 20th centuries, the Phoenix Opera productions are literally the favorite operas of all time!
Tickets: $15 adults; $12 seniors/staff; $10 students/military; $8 children.
