The Lyric Stage: Jan. 21 - Gilbert and Sullivan

Jan 21, 2018

A traditional performance of highlights from Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance this Sunday at 8PM on The Lyric Stage. Classic interpreters include John Reed, Donald Adams and Valerie Masterson, with the The D'Oyly Carte Opera Chorus & Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Isadore Godrey.

Nothing beats an excellent performance of Gilbert and Sullivan this Sunday at 8PM on The Lyric Stage.

Host Ryan Brandau will explore the seven cantatas that make up this German Baroque masterpiece by Dietrich Buxtehude- Membra Jesu Nostri or The Limbs of our Jesus.

The mass Se la face ay  pale of Guillaume Dufay reveals a mixture of medieval strictness and Renaissance freedom, which is to be expected, written as it was by the man who stood at the watershed of both periods. Dufay is also the first composer to be prolific in both sacred and secular music.  Hear a performance of this great work on Friday's Distant Mirror as David Munrow directs the Early Music Consort of London.  Join Allan Kelly at 10pm. 

Join The IRIS Orchestra for The Classical Network in Concert's IRIS Wired Friday at 8 pm for a program titled "The Love Edition," featuring works inspired by and related to love.
