Bernadette Peters performs with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra Thursday
If you’ve never heard her perform live, go. Just go.
DALLAS Not all divas need gold grills to grab attention.
Some must rely on pure talent.
In fact, Bernadette Peters needs nothing but her powerful voice to command all eyes upon her as if she’s performing one of the Seven Wonders, but she’s so much more than simply a singer. She’s a legend.
And this week, she’s performing along with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra for what’s really two concerts in one.
The evening begins as Karina Canellakis conducts the orchestra with performances of J. Strauss’ Overture to Die Fledermaus, Rossini’s Overture to William Tell, and Bernstein’s Overture to West Side Story.
That last number is a hint at things to come after intermission when Tony Award-winning Peters hits the stage to sing hits from the American songbook and some signature Broadway showstoppers.
If you’ve never heard her perform live, prepare to have your big gay world sufficiently rocked.
And your personal ranking of divas put seriously in question.
