Help us re-start our yearly full productions of opera, which showcase the best on-the-way-to-famous performers and offer a uniquely intimate experience for the audience. Our comeback piece of choice is the rarely-performed one-act chamber version of Bernstein's Candide, featuring its 13-piece orchestra. This highly-theatrical piece will be led by actor and director John Martello at the historic social/artist club, The Players on Gramercy Park. Fully-produced and -performed by young emerging artists and musicians, the project will employ over 20 singers, a fresh production team of 7, 13 orchestra members, and a conductor and director. Performances on September 23rd & 25th will be open to the public at a low cost: we believe in bringing opera to the people.
