Gulfshore Opera is celebrating the holidays with a Renaissance inspired Christmas concert in costume with a candlelight procession in Bonita Springs, Naples, and Punta Gorda. These three concerts feature GO Divas, Gulfshore Opera’s newest, all female group comprised of six beautiful young ladies with degrees in classical voice.
The GO Divas will perform Benjamin Britten’s Ceremony of Carols written in 1942 for a three-part treble choir. The work consists of 11 movements based on Christmas carols from the 15th century.
The Divas will also perform familiar early carols like “Lo How a Rose Ere Blooming,” “Coventry Carol” and “A Very Merry Madrigal.” The first of the these three concerts will be an open air concert as a part of the Opera al Fresco Series.
The GO Divas made their debut in November at Mercato in Naples and Carmelo’s Italian Ristorante in Punta Gorda. Their concert, performing a variety of vocal ensembles with rich harmonies, was warmly received.
The GO Divas include Lauren Davis, mezzo-soprano; Lydia Howery, alto; Lauryn Kay, mezzo-soprano; Daniela Magura, mezzo-soprano; Erika Ramirez, soprano; and Marie Talley, soprano. Accompanist is Kelly Utterback.
Renaissance Christmas Carols will be presented Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. at Breezeway at St. Leo’s, Bonita Springs; Dec. 13 at 6 p.m. at Salvation Army in Naples; and Dec. 17 at 7 p.m. at The Gulf Theater in Punta Gorda. Tickets for each performance are $35 general admission. Make a reservation by visiting www.gulfshoreopera.org or by calling 239-529-3925.
