The Mississauga Symphony Orchestra (MSO) returns to the Living Arts Centre (LAC) this Saturday night with what it describes as “an enchanting evening of popular arias from Carmen, La Boheme and La Traviata.”

Maestro Denis Mastromonaco leads the orchestra in the April 30 performance entitled The Best of MSO Opera, which begins at 8 p.m. and features special guest cast member and world-class mezzo-soprano Julie Nesrallah.

Tickets to the Hammerson Hall show cost $40 to $65, and include underground parking. Socially distanced seating options are available.

Call the LAC box office at 905-306-6000.

Joining the orchestra is a “dazzling cast of singers” that includes, in addition to Nesrallah, soprano Cristina Pisani, tenor Romulo Delgado and baritone Christopher Dunham.

Nesrallah also hosts CBC Music’s Tempo and performs for leading opera companies, symphonies, festivals and chamber music ensembles across Canada and around the world.

In July 2011, she sang God Save the Queen for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during their visit to Canada Day festivities in Ottawa.

Nesrallah is the recipient of several distinguished awards including the Canada Council for the Arts Emerging Artist Award and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for her cultural contribution to Canada’s performing arts.

CarmenLa Boheme and La Traviata were each produced by the MSO as fully-staged grand opera in 2017, 2018 and 2019, respectively, the orchestra says.

The MSO, with a combination of 100 community musicians and professional section leads, has earned the reputation as the best hybrid orchestra in Canada, MSO officials say.
