The opera is based on Anton Chekhov’s play “Three Sisters,” and it features a cast of seven singers. The performances will be held March 9 and 11 in the Sosnoff Theater of the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.

Radziun is currently pursuing a Master of Music degree in vocal performance at the Bard College Conservatory of Music. The prestigious Graduate Vocal Arts Program at Bard College consists of 13 singers, each of whom work closely with the program’s artistic director, world-renowned soprano and four-time Grammy award winner Dawn Upshaw.

Radziun is a 2006 graduate of Cambridge-Isanti High School, and a 2010 graduate magna cum laude of Northwestern College in Saint Paul. After Radziun’s 2010 performance in Monteverdi’s “Vespro della beata Vergine” at the Oberlin Baroque Performance Institute, Cleveland Classical described the tenor as “brilliant in his solo performances…”

Tickets are $15, $25, $35, and $100 (the latter includes priority seating and an invitation to the March 11 post-concert champagne reception with the artists).

All ticket sales benefit the Conservatory’s scholarship fund.
