Opera Performance in Queens, New York
Today, I went to see a classical opera performance as a part of a project called Sounds of Arts Festival 2011 held in Long Island City, New York. I am not familiar with opera songs, but I enjoyed their singing very much. The four women sung operatta songs; Apres un Reve, Come Again Sweet Love, Voi Che Sapete, Kind Fortune Smiles - Arel's Song, Widmung, Che Faro Senza Duridice, Danza Danza, Le Berceaux, American Lullby, Per La Gloria from 'Griselda', Adieu, Vecchia Zimarro Senti from 'La Boheme'. The Piano for all songs was played by Serina Shimizu. Ludwing van Beethoven - Romance Po.40 and Carmen Fantasy was peformed on violin by Chie Yoshimura. There were exhibitions of kimono, make up and hair dressing after the music performances.
