“No one reignites that golden-age magic the way Michael Fabiano does…[he is] reminiscent of the young Luciano Pavarotti.” (Opera News)

A 2005 University of Michigan graduate, tenor Michael Fabiano was the first singer to receive major career recognition in the same year with two prestigious prizes: the Richard Tucker Award (for an American singer poised on the edge of a major national or international career) and the Beverly Sills Artist Award (for young singers who have appeared in solo roles at the Metropolitan Opera). His vibrant voice and emotional commitment to every role that he sings brings an intensity to his art that is all too rare in the world of opera today. “A marvel… Fabiano’s sound was so beautiful, and the transition from the bottom to the top of his range so seamless as to proclaim him ‘the’ tenor that we have all been waiting for.” (San Francisco Classical Voice)

 

A Prelude Dinner, featuring guest speaker George Shirley, precedes the performance. Reservations: 734.764.8489.
