Elias Faingersh, “the golden trombone” of Europe and best musician of the year (Sweden), brings his multiple award-winning, Off Broadway hit to Southwest Louisiana. Connecting stories from his life to the operas in which he played, Faingersh guides the audience through a comedic crash course in finding operatic (and personal) meaning, as he recounts his decision to leave a coveted position at the Metropolitan Opera.
This story is about the choices faced by most people — whether to pursue comfort and security or follow their dreams. Faingersh’s musical style is unique. He taps, blows and sings into the brass, adroitly flipping it to use a microphone mounted on the back for operatic vocals and hitting foot pedals to loop sound effects.
Combining music, comedy and candor, this show is a peek into a composer’s mind.
