MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS, BOSTON Avenue of the Arts 465 Huntington Avenue Boston, Massachusetts 617-267-9300 TTY: 617-267-9703 THE INVENTION OF FANTASY EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY VENICE -- June 2 through September 30, 2012. Venice in the eighteenth century, the age of Casanova, was one of the pleasure centers of Europe, famed for its theater and opera and its carnival maskers. Even today, the city, when compared with ordinary cities, appears to be a fantasy, a dream, a hallucina- tion. Giovanni Battista Tiepolo's voluptuous painted cloudscapes with figures opened illusionistic light- filled vistas in ceilings; his drawings and prints have a comparable aerial lightness and luminosity. He was assisted by his son Domenico, who, when he retired from painting about 1785, concentrated on making fin- ished drawings on biblical and mytho- logical themes, as well as remarkably playful and whimsical scenes of Venetian daily life. The Museum's The Milliner's Shop (above) is one of the finest of these drawings. Other art- ists in the exhibition include Canaletto and the early Piranesi.

WYNDHAM HOTEL, ANDOVER 123 Old River Rd., Andover, MA 1-978-346-9496 www.ATSCommunicationsma, corn AN EVENING OF ITALIAN ROMANCE featuring MICHAEL AMANTE and MARISSA FAMIG- LIETTI -- Saturday, June 9, 2012. Michael Amante is affectionately known as the "People's Tenor." He has been crowned the "Prince of High C's" for his ability to hit and sustain with ease, one of the highest notes of a tenor's voice. With Michael's long history of singing popular Rock and Gospel music, coupled with extensive classical Bel-Canto training, he is able to sing even higher with a strength and mastery rarely heard anywhere in the world. Being able to produce these notes consistently within the context of a moving line and in conjunction with a beautiful sound, requires not only talent, but skilled use of technique. The most prolific tenor of all time, Luciano Pavarotti, the "King of High C's," once described the feeling this way: "Excited and happy, but with a strong undercur- rent of fear. The moment I actually hit the note, I almost lose conscious- ness. A physical, animal sensation seizes me. Then I regain control." Amante experiences this thrilling sensation as well.
