WASHINGTON, April 5, 2014 – Rising young opera stars, tenor Paul Appleby and baritone Joshua Hopkins will be appearing at the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater this Sunday, April 6, in a varied, eclectic vocal recital. Sunday’s program ranges from the music of Beethoven and Mozart to a set of “Blue Mountain Ballads” by Paul Bowles. 

The artists will be accompanied by pianist Natalia Katyukova.

Sunday’s program is part of WNO’s ongoing series of “extra season” performances that range from recitals like this one to workshop versions of mini-operas and performances by the company’s talented crew of Domingo-Cafritz Young Artists—arguably some of the great new opera stars of the future.

Mr. Appleby and Mr. Hopkins are already in town rehearsing for WNO’s upcoming performances in the company’s visually arresting new production of Mozart’s “Magic Flute.” Mr. Appleby, a recent grad of the New York Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, will sing the role of Tamino, while Mr. Hopkins—who has been named as one of 25 young artists that “Opera News” predicts will become key vocalists over the next quarter century—will sing the role of Mozart’s bumbling bird-man, Papageno.

Tickets are $45, but a few special discounted tickets still remain. For further information and for tickets to this program, visit this link at the Kennedy Center’s website.
