Renowned baritone Christopher Maltman performs ‘Carnival of Animals’ in SF

Famed baritone talks to the animals

From Mozart to Verdi, Baroque to contemporary works, Christopher
Maltman is one of the opera world’s more versatile artists. The
British baritone, who was a charming Papageno in Mozart’s “The
Magic Flute” at San Francisco Opera in 2007, returns to the Bay
Area this week fresh from his role as the repellant Mark Rutland in
the world premiere of Nico Muhly’s “Marnie” at the
Metropolitan Opera.

Maltman is also a fine recitalist, and In this appearance for
San Francisco Performances’ “Art of the Song” series, he’ll
sing a wide-ranging program titled “Carnival of the Animals.”
Included are animal-themed works by composers from Poulenc and
Ravel to Reger, Schumann and Wolf — as well as light-hearted
British music hall classics by Flanders and Swann. French pianist
Audrey Saint-Gil is his accompanist.

Details: 7:30 p.m. Nov. 13; Herbst Theatre,
San Francisco; $45-$70; 415-392-2545, sfperformances.org.
