Songs of Summer with Tess Altiveros

Elisabeth Ellis, Piano | Stephen Stubbs, Lute | Expired Thursday, July 16 at 7:00 PM

This recital has expired.

Equally at home in repertoire ranging from the 17th century to the 21st, soprano Tess Altiveros is best known to Seattle Opera audiences for her bold and affecting work in our three groundbreaking chamber productions: The Combat (2017), O+E (2018), and The Falling and the Rising (2019). A native Seattleite, her “pure gold” (Opera Magazine) voice has charmed audiences from the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts to Carnegie Hall.

Framing her recital with selections from Poulenc’s Tel jour telle nuit song cycle, Altiveros and pianist Elisabeth Ellis take us from morning to evening with pieces that trace daily thoughts and rituals.
