Join us for a conversation between Chicago Opera Theater’s Music Advisor Francesco Milioto and Amy Hutchison, director of COT’s upcoming Donizetti Double Bill: Il Pigmalione and Rita.

Featuring performances that span Donizetti’s body of works, following his compositional journey from first opera, Il Pigmalione, to one of his last, Rita. Joined by a panel of Chicago bel canto and Donizetti scholars, they will take a deeper look into the life and legacy of Gaetano Donizetti.
