The 8:30 PM performances, which are titled Bohème to Broadway, will also feature singer Melissa Zapin. Chris Denny is the music director.

"It's a night of song that takes you from opera's favorite melodies to Broadway and beyond," Falk told Playbill.com. "I took some time off to do more classical singing and concerts, and it has been a lot of fun, but I am leaning more towards my Broadway roots lately!"

Among the songs that will be heard at the intimate venue are "Nessun Dorma," "O Mio Babbino Caro," "All I Ask of You," "I Could Have Danced All Night," "If I Love Again," "Why God, Why?," "Bring Him Home" and "Time to Say Goodbye."

Melissa Zapin is a former "Miss Hawaii" who has performed opera all over the world.

Willy Falk received a Tony Award nomination for his performance as Chris in the original Broadway production of Miss Saigon. His other Broadway credits include Les Miserables, Starlight Express, A Chorus Line, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Marilyn. He has also appeared in regional productions of A Little Night Music, Little Shop of Horrors, Falsettos and Evita. A graduate of The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and trained as an operatic tenor, Falk recently performed operatic roles with The Lyrique-en-Mer Festival and The National Orchestra of Lyon, in France, as well as The Hawaii Opera Theatre, The New Hampshire Opera, The Augusta Opera and The Shreveport Opera.
