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.

The burgeoning singers of the New York Opera Exchange team up with members of the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra to present “An Evening of Scenes and Arias,” a showcase of excerpts from famous operas penned by artists including Puccini, Mozart, and Donizetti. Supertitles accompany each uvula-rattling performance, ensuring that audiences can follow euphonic gems such as Mimi’s Italian dialogue and emotional aria from La Boheme and the Queen of the Night’s menacing, German aria from Die Zauberflöte. The January 28 performance is followed up by a reception where art appreciators can reflect on memorable vocal performances and swap opera trading cards. Peruse the ensemble’s website for a gallery of singing Viking helmets and a full listing of performance pieces.
