UM Gusman Concert Hall
Sings with Pianist Shelly Berg
Mezzo-soprano Alicia Hall Moran, who starred in The Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess on Broadway, and pianist Shelly Berg present a hybrid evening of stellar opera and jazz, first curated by Opera Southwest. Known for pushing the boundaries of performance with passionate flair, Moran and Berg explore the points of intersection and lyricism of grand opera and jazz. Iconic composers from both great art forms get their due, from the improvisatory nature of arias by Gioachino Rossini to the drama in such jazz standards as Billy Strayhorn’s “Lush Life.” Gorgeous moments from Leonard Bernstein and George Gershwin will resonate in new ways alongside works from Clifford Brown and Stevie Wonder.
