A great vocalist’s art springs directly from the body, much like a bird’s flight or an armadillo’s uncanny impersonation of a roly-poly. See how a body sings with this GrouponLive deal to see Chorus!, presented by Opera Louisiane at First Baptist Church on Thursday, April 12, at 7:30 p.m. Choose between two options:

Helmed by Opera Louisiane music director Michael Borowitz, Chorus! soars through the sanctuary at First Baptist Church on the undulating sound waves of a 120-person choir and four soloists. Backed by a full orchestra, the Opera’s own singers and those of the Baton Rouge Symphony Chorus pay homage to instantly recognizable works including the “Humming Chorus” from Puccini’s Madame Butterfly and “Toreador Song” from Bizet’s Carmen, moving the audience through dreamy, sweeping refrains and bold exclamations throughout a program that runs just less than two hours. Audience members may find themselves humming along in surprise to songs they already know from movies, commercials, or the soundtracks dogs hear when chasing squirrels.
