Morris Robinson Joins Outdoor Candlelight Opera Salon

By David Salazar

The Phoenicia Festival of the Voice has announced that Morris Robinson will be performing on its Outdoor Candelight opera salon on Dec. 19, 2020.

The famed bass will be stepping in for bass-baritone Kyle Albertson, who was originally scheduled to perform. In addition to Robinson, this outdoor concert will feature soprano Jasmine Habersham and tenor Adam Diegel; they will be accompanied by Milana Strezeva, founder of Naples’ Grand Piano Series.

The program will include music from such operas as “Carmen” and “La Bohème,” in addition to Musical Theatre and other popular favorites.

The event will be held at The Knickerbocker of Naples in Florida where seating will be limited in order to accommodate people while maintaining social distance. Facemasks will be mandatory inside the mansion and until seated outdoors, and sanitizing stations will be set up to allow audience members access to things such as hand sanitizer and face masks.
