Description: Revered by The New York Times for his ardor, richness and power, renowned New York City Metropolitan Opera tenor Matthew Polenzani will perform at Assumption College on Saturday, March 17, in the Jeanne Y. Curtis Performance Hall in the Tsotsis Family Academic Center. The Assumption College Chorale and student soloists will also perform. Special seating is available to those who wish to attend a special reception with Polenzani in the ballroom on the third floor of Tsotsis Family Academic Center immediately following the performance. (For those that would like to meet Polenzani, click on the green TICKETS button and select the TICKET AND VIP RECEPTION option.)

The Chorale will present an evening of international music, including selections from operas, operettas, music theater, and Italian and Neapolitan songs. Polenzani will perform select numbers from his wide-ranging repertoire.

Assumption College is honored to welcome the internationally respected tenor Matthew Polenzani for an evening of New York City-caliber music on our Worcester campus, said Richard Monroe 85, guest theatre director. The acoustics of the Jeanne Y. Curtis Performance Hall, the most sophisticated of any college on the East Coast, was created to showcase talent such as Polenzanis, who is accustomed to performing in majestic venues such as Carnegie Hall or the Royal Opera House. Mr. Polenzanis visit is a tremendous opportunity for members of the community who would not otherwise be able to experience his talents.

The tenor has received impressive reviews throughout the country. The San Francisco Chronicle called Polenzani a wonderfully fresh and robust voice, with clarion top notes and a gift for sweet phrasing while Opera News shared that his work onstage is the perfect marriage of splendid voice and unfaltering genuineness.

Polenzanis vast-ranging repertory includes La clemenza di Tito, Werther, Les Contes dHoffmann, La traviata, Roméo et Juliette, Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Don Giovanni, Don Pasquale, Il barbiere di Siviglia and Die Zauberflöte. Polenzani has performed in celebrated opera houses across the world, including the Lyric Opera of Chicago, San Francisco Opera, Royal Opera House, and the Opernhaus Zurich. Next year, he is scheduled to serve as guest artist with the Monteverdi Tuscany Festival in Siena, Italy. Polenzani has been recognized with the Richard Tucker Award, The Metropolitan Operas Beverly Sills Artist Award, and an Opera News Award.

Free parking is available on the Assumption campus for this premier event.
