The Instituto Superior de Arte del Teatro Colón is the training division of Teatro Colón, one of the leading opera houses in the Americas. It has been training artists for the world's opera and ballet stages for decades. For the tenth year, a group of talented young singers—winners of the Concurso Alejandro Cordero—will join Music of the Americas for an evening of opera favorites, led by pianist Marcelo Ayub. From the tragic to the comedic, the lyrical to the light, these rising stars bring a dynamism and intimate passion all their own to the New York stage.
