Los Angeles Metropolitan Opera &
Charissa Barger

Bel Canto Saluta

Los Angeles MET: Glenn Fernandez, Carlos Gomez, Linda Jackson, Samantha Aiko Kim

Charissa Barger, harp | Alan Chan, piano

Five years after GPS's inaugural concert, Los Angeles Met returns in conjunction with harpist Charissa Barger. This program brings us to early 19th Century Italy during their glamorous bel canto era with operatic works by Bellini, Donezetti, Rossini and more. A Beverly Hills Audition winner, Charissa will bring us solo works for Harp, and together with composer/pianist Alan Chan will provide accompaniment to this Italian repertoire.
