“From Broadway to Baroque” features early music jewels like Lascia ch’io Pianga and Schafe können sicher weiden, as well as opera arias from Così fan tutte, I Puritani, Norma and Faust. They end the programme with selection of numbers from The Merry Widow, Sweeny Todd, Les Misérables, Evita and The Producers.
