New (and old) opera comes to Bel Cantanti

By John Scherch | Posted in Host Blogs, Interviews, New Music | No Comments

Bel Cantanti Opera presents the world premiere of Frances Pollock and Robert Misbin’s Briscula the Magician, based on Thomas Mann’s novella Mario and the Magician, at the Randolph Road Theater in Silver Spring from March 3rd to the 15th on Saturdays and Sundays. The opera features many quotes of opera from the 19th century, and Frances stopped by the studio to talk about that and more!
