The Canadian group Lyrico, in concert for the first time in Montreal, is proud to present A Very Operatic Christmas, on December 5th, at 7:30 p.m. at Place des Arts’ Théâtre Maisonneuve. The ensemble is a classical crossover trio comprised of Marco Bocchicchio, Sam Champagne, and Matthew Adam. Together, they bring classically-trained voices to beautiful melodies, from opera to pop.

Backed by 46 musicians of the FILMharmonique Orchestra and a 40-piece choir, Lyrico delivers an exciting program including both well-known Italian classics, crossover hits, and Christmas favorites. Selections include Brindisi, The Prayer, O Holy Night, and many more.

Among the selected pieces are the classic Libiamo from La Traviata, The Prayer, popularized by Céline Dion and Andrea Bocelli, Minuit Chrétien, and many others!

The Orchestra, under the direction of Maestro Francis Choinière, will also perform the overture to the opera classic La Traviata, the Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana and Tchaikovsky’s famous Waltz of the Flowers (The Nutcracker).
