The Maligned Mezzo presented by Transgressive Theatre-Opera

From the very beginnings of opera and on through the ages, classical composers have give the alto voice short shrift. 

Join Chicago's finest mezzo-sopranos as they explore operatic alto roles through the ages. Hear such famous arias sung by the disadvantaged, maniacal, and breast-bound altos as:
Non so piu, Le Nozze, Mozart
Smanie Impicabili, Cosi, Mozart
Una Voce poco fa, Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Donizetti
Habanera, Carmen, Bizet
Witch’s Ride, Hansel and Gretel, Humperdinck
O mio Fernando, La Favorita, Donizetti
Stride la Vampa, Il Trovatore, Verdi
Schläfst du Gast, Die Walküre, Wagner
Weiche Wotan, Das Rheingold, Wagner

The beautiful sanctuary of Edgewater's Ebenezer Lutheran Church will prove a safe and soothing environment for our magical, musical meanderings. And with hysterical and historical narration by Transgressive Theatre-Opera's Producing Artist Director Aaron Hunt, TT-O and Chicago's powerhouse altos will hypnotize you with song and story. Afterwards, will you want to wear a witch's hat for Halloween? Or a garland of flowers?
