‘Ladies Who Lunch’ Open Dress Rehearsal
St. Mary’s Cathedral - Bishop’s Hall, 203 East 10th Street, Austin, Texas 78701
Friday, January 13th, 2017, 7pm

‘Ladies Who Lunch’ Open Dress Rehearsal featuring Claire Vangelisti & June Julian, sopranos; Katherine Altobello, alto; Jeffrey Jones–Ragona, tenor; and Richard Seiler and Martha Mortensen Ahern, pianists. This innovative program weaves the lives of three women… An attentive, meddling and haughty waiter delivers candid commentary on the “ladies who lunch” – a seasoned socialite, a business woman, and a young bride. The ladies, and the waiter, articulate everything about their lifestyles and personas through a wide range of musical repertoire including operatic arias, art songs and musical theatre. While their individuality shines through, their lives become gradually intertwined into a cacophony of sound reflecting the frivolities of life, joy, hope, promise, disappointment, regrets, insanity, mortality, and ultimately, peace.
Tickets: $10
