Crossing Genres presents the lighter side of opera, not opera driven but with opera and operetta interwoven for a more diverse musical experience. Observe the similarities of the two genres and how operetta grew out of the opera art form. Then move on to a more contemporary art form influenced by opera - musical theater. Tenor Matthew DeMarco, soprano Mia Pafumi and baritone Matthew Ciuffitelli are uniquely suited for this musical fare having performed in operas, operettas and on Broadway. Artistic Director Mary Pinto accompanies the singers on piano with enlightening commentary by Mariana Karpatova.
