The Dallas Opera will present Angel Blue in the Robert E. and Jean Ann Titus Art Song Recital.

The soprano will be accompanied by renowned South African pianist James Baillieu on Jan. 26, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. in Moody Performance Hall at the AT&T Performing Arts Center, Dallas, Texas.

Blue will perform a recital program consisting of songs, arias and romanzas by Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Jake Heggie, Ruperto Chapí, and Richard Strauss, as well a favorite spiritual or two.

In a press release, Ian Derrer, The Kern Wildenthal General Director and CEO of The Dallas Opera said, “We are proud to present these remarkable artists in such an intimate setting,” “enabling music lovers to experience their artistry on such an engaging level. Angel’s warmth and excitement—as well as her flair with crossover repertoire—will surely capture the heart of the Dallas community.”

Blue recently opened the Metropolitan Opera season in a new production of Gershwin’s “Porgy and Bess” and is slated to return to the Teatro alla Scala for “La Traviata.”
