You may think you don’t know opera, but you are probably more familiar than you know with many opera arias because of these great songs’ frequent appearances in pop culture. Movie scores and television ads abound that use powerful opera themes. In the case of Alexander Borodin’s most popular work, the Polovetsian Dances, the theme opened the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics with a flying girl swept through a winter dreamscape. The Gliding Dance of the Maidens inspired the song Stranger in Paradise in the 1953 Broadway musical Kismet.

This the most famous party music in opera! Passion, even violence, mark the drama in Giuseppi Puccini’s operas. The Great Falls Symphony will present Canzoni D’Amore and after, you might not get these memorable melodies out of your head as you leave the Mansfield Theater.
