CLASSICAL | 'When Love Goes Wrong'

The Finger Lakes Choral Festival is best-known for its summertime presentations of choral blockbusters, like the Berlioz and Verdi Requiems. The chorus, and its imaginative director Adrian Horn, will present something a bit different for their 2017 summer concert this Sunday at Hochstein Performance Hall. "When Love Goes Wrong" is a bouquet of fervent scenes devoted to a favorite operatic proposition: the bigger the love (generally between a soprano and a tenor), the more likely it is to really not end well — but at least the lovers will expire to a good tune. Horn and the FLCF will be joined by vocal soloists and an orchestra for this program of heartbreakers and blockbusters (and good tunes) from tragic operas by Bizet, Verdi, Puccini, Purcell, Donizetti, and Wagner.

Finger Lakes Choral Festival will present "When Love Goes Wrong" on Sunday, July 23, at Hochstein Performance Hall, 50 North Plymouth Avenue. 4 p.m. Free admission. 465-0838; fingerlakeschoral.org.
