Live from the Madison Opera Center
Kyle Ketelsen, bass-baritone
Emily Secor, soprano
Scott Gendel, piano
Sunday, November 1, 7:30 pm
Kyle Ketelsen is in regular demand by the world’s leading opera companies and orchestras. In the past year, he has sung leading roles with the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Zurich Opera, Hamburg Opera, and Washington National Opera.
Kyle makes his home here in Wisconsin with his wife and teenage children. He sang with Madison Opera early in his career – including at the very first Opera in the Park in 2002 – and has continued to stay close to the company.
Now he sings at the Madison Opera Center for the first time in a tribute to the great American bass Giorgio Tozzi, who was Kyle’s teacher at Indiana University.
Tozzi’s career spanned decades at the Metropolitan Opera, as well as many Broadway musicals – even dubbing the vocals for the film of South Pacific. Kyle’s salute to his late teacher will feature music from great operas and musicals – and a story or two. Soprano Emily Secor joins him for this special evening.
