Celebrating An Evening With Baritone Paulo Szot At The New Jersey Performing Arts Centers

Brazilian-Polish Baritone Paulo Szot will be singing an evening from the American Songbook at Newark, New Jersey’s Performing Arts Center on Saturday, May 6, 2017.

Szot has been successfully straddling the lines between opera and Broadway, with past performances of Shostakovich’s “The Nose,” Bizet’s “Carmen,” and Massenet’s “Manon” at the Metropolitan Opera in addition to the 2008 revival of Rodger’s and Hammerstein’s “South Pacific,” for which he won the Tony Award.

This year he recently performed at the New York Pops Gala and will later perform at an Evening of Cabaret at 54 Below.

He continues the trend with performances of Andrew Lloyd Weber’s latin rock musical “Evita” at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival before transitioning back to Mozart in Paris with “Così fan tutte” at Palais Garnier.

He is also scheduled for Mozart’s “Le Nozze di Figaro” at the Michigan Opera and will also sing in an Oman gala on New Year’s Eve. In 2018 Szot is scheduled to perform in Kurt Weill’s “Street Scene” with Patricia Racette and Joel Prieto at the Teatro Real.

The Evening with Paulo Szot will feature two back-to-back performances at 6 and 8:30 p.m. EDT. Details on his repertoire have been kept under wraps.
