L’amour, l’amour: Ai­lyn Pérez

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS - — James M. Keller

So­prano Ai­lyn Pérez was much ap­pre­ci­ated as the lead­ing lady Mar­guerite in Santa Fe Opera’s 2011 pro­duc­tion of Gounod’s Faust; and this sum­mer she’ll be back to die in an­other essen­tial role of the French lyric stage, in the same com­poser’s Roméo et Juli­ette. Vo­cal afi­ciona­dos will have an op­por­tu­nity to hear a dif­fer­ent facet of her reper­toire, at 6 p.m. on Tues­day, March 29, when she presents a recital of French and Span­ish songs, as­sisted by pi­anist Gary Matthew­man. The pro­gram, which in­cludes songs by Manuel de Falla, Fernando Obradors, Joaquín Tu­rina, Gabriel Fauré, a nd Rey naldo Hahn, largely fol­lows the playlist of Pérez’s 2013 CD Poème d’un jour, the ti­tle track of which — Fauré’s three-song cy­cle of 1878 — traces the course of a failed love af­fair. The con­cert, which is spon­sored by Santa Fe Desert Cho­rale, takes place at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.). Tick­ets ($ 35-$75) are avail­able by call­ing 505- 988-1234 or by vis­it­ing www.tick­etssantafe.org.
