The final concert in Opera Orlando’s “Opera in the Park” series will feature a tenor, Marco Panuccio.
He will present an afternoon of Italian music, including such beloved standards as “’O sole mio” and “Funiculi, Funicula.” Also on the program: Lucio Dalla’s “Caruso,” and
“Che gelida manina” from Puccini’s “La Boheme.” Panuccio recently sang the role of Alfredo in “La Traviata” for Grange Park Opera, outside London in the U.K. For that performance, the Bachtrack classical-music website raved, “Marco Panuccio has a real sense of reach and depth in his voice. His ‘Parigi, o cara’ is bewitching and heartrending.”
The Italian-American singer also has performed at Wexford Festival Opera in Ireland, with notable U.S. companies including Lyric Opera of Chicago, and in the televised “O Holy Night: An Evening of Holiday Song.”
The concert will be at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 4, at the University Club of Winter Park, 841 N. Park Ave., Winter Park. Robin Stamper will accompany. Tickets are $30. Call 407- 648-0077 or go to operaorlando.org.
