SFP’s vocal resident artist Nicholas Phan performs selections from his recently-released fourth solo album. Gods & Monsters is an expression of the acclaimed lyric tenor's life-long fascination with myths and legends, and a testament to this singer’s great gift for storytelling through the medium of song. Phan joins forces with pianist Robert Mollicone to explore this thematic program of Lieder by the great Romantic composers of the Germanic tradition: songs recounting tall tales of the godly, the gallant and the grotesque—the fantastical and the fearsome.
merican tenor Brian Jagde has quickly emerged as one of the most engaging and exciting lyric tenors of his generation. Since his first Mondavi Center appearance (the 2013 Rising Stars of Opera concert), Jagde has gone on to sing at the Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House, Teatro San Carlo and the Lyric Opera of Chicago.
