The Dallas Opera, in partnership with The Dallas Museum of Art, will celebrate the final days of spring with a musical tribute to everyone’s favorite sentiment, “Love: In Mixed Musical Media.”
“Music and Masterpieces,” an increasingly popular project developed by the two arts organizations, seeks to partner the performing and visual arts by style, era, or country of origin to create a more fully rounded understanding of both. Experts from the field of opera and the visual arts will underscore subtle connections and define movements within the culture that influenced their creations—in addition to underscoring the way we experience these great masterpieces on canvas, in stone, or on stage today.
Two critically acclaimed young artists, soprano Ava Pine and tenor Andrew Bidlack, accompanied by pianist Kate Stevens, will perform a recital that explores the various meanings of the world “love” from maternal to platonic to romantic, paired with projected selections from the DMA’s world-renowned permanent collection.
Admission is free, but reservations are recommended. The program is carefully designed to enhance a special gallery tour of representative art works; a tour will take place immediately following the recital.
