The Civic Orchestra season finale concert with the Ryan Opera Center came to a halt last month after Christopher Kenney sang “Largo al factotum.” An encore of Figaro’s aria by the second year ensemble member would be enough reason to attend. Four excerpts from Barber narrated by Lyric’s dramaturg, Roger Pines, plus a pre-concert talk make for a delightful way to spend an hour before dinner on a Tuesday.
