“O Mio Babbino Caro,” used countless times in commercials, movies, and television, is the hit title song from the world’s most famous opera composer of beautiful melodies, Giacomo Puccini. From the hilarious opera “Gianni Schicchi” about a family divvying up their inheritance, this aria is just 3 minutes of music from the composer’s funniest work, along with the Michigan premier of its modern sequel, “Buoso’s Ghost.” The operas are fully staged with orchestra and subtitles, so anyone can experience it firsthand. If you like the up close nature of the Met broadcasts, you’ll love seeing opera this close up, presented by the talented stars of the future Met and Lyric Opera stage. Bay View Opera usually sells out, so get tickets early to the only live opera in the northwestern lower peninsula.
