Singers from the METROPOLITAN OPERA’S LINDEMANN YOUNG ARTIST DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Xian Zhang and rising stars from the Met Opera’s young-artist program perform highlights from two of Mozart’s most beloved operatic masterworks, preceded by music composed for the church and the concert hall.
MOZART Exsultate, jubilate

MOZART Violin Concerto No. 4
NJSO Concertmaster Eric Wyrick performs a Mozart concerto into which the composer crafted too much virtuosity to perform himself!
MOZART Scenes from Don Giovanni and The Marriage of Figaro
Hear classic arias and duets that cover the entire spectrum of human emotion, including the sublime “Letter Duet,” which was memorably used in The Shawshank Redemption.
Talkback – Jan 9 & Jan 12 after the concert
Hear from the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program singers who take center stage for Mozart’s Don Giovanni & Figaro.
