Viviano will be joined by Teri Hansen, Kip Wilborn and Kishna Davis for the concerts at the Florida Atlantic University Performing Arts Auditorium (Feb. 13) and the Eissey Concert Hall at the Palm Beach Community College (Feb. 14). The singers will be backed by the Florida Sunshine Pops Orchestra under the direction of Richard Hayman. Viviano, whose Broadway credits also include The Life, Falsettos, City of Angels, Romance/Romance and The Three Musketeers, told Playbill.com that the program for Puccini to Webber "will include some favorites from 'serious opera' (La Boheme, Turandot, La Traviata and Madame Butterfly), operetta (Die Fledermaus, The Merry Widow and Candide), and the theatre (Kismet, My Fair Lady, Porgy and Bess and, of course, Cats, Aspects of Love and The Phantom of the Opera) as well as some other favorites like 'O Sole Mio' and 'Con Te Partiro.' [It's] a rather wide swath, so to speak, but to their credit, this orchestra, under producer Joseph Ferrer, and the baton of the great conductor Richard Hayman, a true music giant for over six decades, is not only up to the task, but always brings new and varied evenings to their vast and growing audience."
