Rising opera star Limmie Pulliam made his Vashon Opera debut in 2016 as Canio in “I Pagliacci.” The critically acclaimed tenor will return for a single matinee performance at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, March 4, at the Kay White Hall, hosted by Vashon Opera.
Pulliam, whose heartfelt portrayal of Canio made a strong impression on Vashon audiences, will share the stage with pianist Spencer Myer and other guest artists.
“They will bring an amazing program of famous arias and songs,” Vashon Opera Artistic Director Jennifer Krikawa said.
Pulliam will sing arias, operatic duets and trios with Vashon Opera performers José Rubio, Julia Benzinger, Jennifer Krikawa and Andrew Krikawa. Soprano Kim Giordano will make her Vashon debut in the duet, “Vicino a te s’acqueta” from “Andrea Chenier.” The program will also include music from “La Bohème,” “Carmen,” “Otello,” “Eugene Onegin,” “The Pearl Fishers,” “Porgy & Bess” and more.
