Our 35th Anniversary Opera Gala is a tribute to Delos founder Amelia S. Haygood (1919-2007). There was nothing Amelia loved more than great singing. For her, the glories of the human voice, the expressive power of vocal artistry, were lifelong cause for celebration.
Karayev's beautiful, exotic ballet music has broad sweep and dimension, along with poignant emotional content. In the stunning ballets, Seven Beauties and In the Path of Thunder, Karayev is writing about the stuff of legend.
