Directed by Robert Shaw

Robert Shaw leads the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in some of opera's most beloved choruses. This assortment ranges from the immensely popular "Va pensiero" from Nabucco to the tragic end of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas. Other selections include "Regina Coeli" from Cavalleria Rusticana and the "Anvil Chorus" from Il Trovatore. These choruses provide comic relief, enhance the plot or give voice to the desire for freedom. With guest soloists, soprano Christine Brewer, tenor Karl Dent and bass Kevin Maynor, this incredible chorus gives first rate performances of the grand and glorious from the stage.
