2 p.m.
Dallas Opera presents SOPRANO NATHALIE PAULIN IN RECITAL
Horchow Auditorium, Dallas Museum of Art
1717 N. Harwood St.
Dallas, TX

French-Canadian soprano Nathalie Paulin will perform in a recital with pronounced Gallic roots, accompanied by Michael Heaston, Head of the Music Staff at TDO. Nathalie Paulin has sung with TDO in productions as varied as The Magic Flute, The Cunning Little Vixen, Manon and The Merry Widow. Highlights from the afternoon program—picked to enhance the DMA’s exhibition Posters of Paris—will include Maurice Ravel’s “Cinq Mèlodies Populaires Grecques” (“Five Popular Greek Songs”). Also on the program will be a selection of Reynaldo Hahn art songs. One very popular song Ms. Paulin will sing is “Si mes vers avaient des ailes” (“If My Verses Had Wings”). Hahn wrote this piece when he was just fifteen years old and is one of his earliest compositions. The program will create an atmosphere for a special gallery tour of Posters of Paris: Toulouse-Lautrec and His Contemporaries, an exhibition exploring the earliest days of the affiche artistique (artistic poster) and its flowering in Paris, first under Jules Chéret in the 1870s and 1880s, and then with a new generation of artists including Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Pierre Bonnard. These artists brought the poster to new heights in the 1890s. For information: 214.443.1000 or wwww.dallasopera.org
