In 1947 Columbia Artist Management created The Bel Canto Trio, featuring tenor Mario Lanza, soprano Frances Yeend, and bass-baritone George London. From 1947-1948 the Trio performed 86 concerts throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada to critical and popular acclaim and was responsible for Mario Lanza’s stardom.To celebrate the 70th anniversary of this tour, Columbia Artist Management created a new Bel Canto Trio starring tenor Joshua Guerrero, soprano Julie Adams, and bass-baritone Nicholas Brownlee to embark on another tour. The new Trio will perform the original program that toured the United States in the 1947-1948 season with some of operas greatest arias, duets and trios from Rigoletto, Faust, I lombardi, La traviata, Manon Lescaut, La bohème, The Barber of Seville, and many others. They will be joined by Christopher Allen on piano. These are the first performances of The Bel Canto Trio at San Diego Opera and the first performances by the Company at The Conrad. Tickets are on sale now and begin at $33 for subscribers. Tickets start at $43.
