REXBURG, IDAHO- Soprano Alyson Cambridge will perform in the Barrus Concert Hall at Brigham Young University-Idaho on Wednesday, January 25, at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Center Stage Performing Arts Series. She will perform opera, jazz, Broadway and crossover selections in her program.
Her rich, warm soprano voice, combined with her musical and dramatic interpretation, have brought her over a decade of successes on the world's leading opera and concert stages, including The Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Washington National Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Carnegie Hall, London's Royal Albert Hall, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Vienna Konzerthaus, among others.
Her repertoire includes the beloved heroines of Puccini, Verdi and Mozart (Mimi, Madama Butterfly, Donna Elvira, Violetta and Micaëla among them), as well as successful forays into the crossover, Broadway and jazz repertoire.
Her debut album, "From the Diary of Sally Hemings," a song cycle by acclaimed American composer William Bolcom, premiered at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall to rave reviews, and her newest album, "Until Now", a mix of jazz, pop and musical theater standards was released in January 2016 on the Naxos imprint Suite 28 Records.
Tickets for the performance are $12 for the general public and $6 for BYU-Idaho students. They are available online at tickets.byui.edu or on school days from the University Store Ticket Office (496-3170).
