The UMSL Department of Music is proud to present visiting scholar and lyric tenor Yannis Filias. Filias has enchanted audiences and illuminated stages with a raw charisma and a striking vocal prowess. A consummate artist plucked from the Greek National Opera, he comes stateside to perform an operatic tour de force. Join Yannis Filias alongside soprano Stella Markou, pianist Alla Voskoboynikova, and UMSL Opera Theatre for an unforgettable evening celebrating star-crossed lovers throughout the centuries! Love and her many patrons will be honored through eclectic selections of arias, duets, and ensembles that feature the works of Puccini, Offenbach, Verdi, Bernstein, Monteverdi and many others!
