Opera Project Blurb

Not only do I sing with them, I'm also on their email list. This came today. Not sure what the actual entry fee is, since the flyer posted around says that tickets are $15.

The Opera Project opens its spring concert season on March 27 at 8 PM at St. Andrew’s Church, 50 York Street , Lambertville , NJ. Tickets are $18 and are available at the door. For information call 908-268-1264.

The concert of arias and duets will feature tenor Steven Snow and Deborah Maher doing “Ah, quegli occhi from Tosca. Also on the program will be selections from Cilea’s “L’Arelsiana,” Charpentier’s “Louise,” Gounod’s “Romeo and Juliet”, Ponchielli’s “La Gioconda,” Mozart’s “Don Giovanni,” Verdi’s “Rigoletto,” Puccini’s “Girl of the Golden West,” and Gilbert and Sullivan’s “Mikado”. These and more will be offered by this versatile company of artists.

Profits from The Opera Project support Doctors Without Borders. The Opera Project feels fortunate that they in some small way have been able to help the earthquake victims in Haiti. The artists donate their performances to keep classical singing alive and accessible in our community on an ongoing basis not just once but throughout the year without traveling to New York or Philadelphia. The Opera Project is keeping magical evenings of music alive in a little church in a little river town somewhere in New Jersey.
