8 p.m. Aug. 9
Nezet-Seguin presents "Italian Opera Night," featuring two operatic vocalists to be announced and arias and overtures by Verdi, Puccini, Rossini, Leoncavallo and Mascagni.
It may seem like nothing special, but the last operatic thing we heard them do in Saratoga involved Tatiana Troyanos. They pretty much abandoned all things operatic after that, and probably this is why. Who will TBA turn out to be, and will the fairly robust local Met in HD scene generate the audience that wasn't there of old? Place your bets.
Welcome to the Spa City, maestro.
