An extension of the PBS docu-concert Pasquale Esposito Celebrates Enrico Caruso, this live show is an homage to the world's first bona fide international recording star, the legendary tenor Enrico Caruso. Born in 1873, Caruso made close to 300 commercially released recordings (the bulk of which you can still get in stores or digitally), and his illustrious career paved the way for classical crossover stars like Luciano Pavarotti and Andrea Bocelli. But opera is meant for the stage, and nothing beats hearing the music live and in person. That's where Esposito comes in. With a repertoire that includes Italian and American standards, traditional Neapolitan arias, and even some original compositions, Esposito performs the songs that made Caruso famous, including "La Donne e Mobile" from Verdi's Rigoletto, one of his most renowned recordings. Expect a blend of fascinating history and operatic prowess when The Voice of a Legend hits the Betts Theater at George Washington University.
