Wes Mason performing title role in Rossini's William Tell

Wes Mason in Rossini's William Tell
Wes Mason will perform the daunting title role in Gioachino Rossini’s  epic William Tell at the Southern Illinois Music Festival in Carbondale this weekend. Due to the length of the piece, each performance is being done over two nights, with the first on June 7 and 8, and the second on June 10 and 11.

Joining Mason will be tenor William Davenport as Arnold whose role demands 17 high C’s, soprano Marina Harris as Mathilde and soprano Sara Duchovnay as Gemmy. You can watch Wes Mason sing part of his famous aria Sois immobile on Facebook. Tickets are available online.

Upcoming performance for Wes Mason include Sara Fellini's The Execution of Mrs. Cotton with the IRT Theater, Father Flynn in Douglas J. Cuomo's Doubt with Union Avenue Opera and Marcello in Puccini's La bohème with the Hawaii Opera Theatre.
