"A Night at the Opera!" at Pequot Library June 17th

2014 YOUNG ARTISTS FROM OPERA SINGERS INITIATIVE PERFORM “A NIGHT AT THE OPERA!” AT PEQUOT LIBRARY

Southport, CT – 131 years after the Metropolitan Opera House opened its doors, opera in the United States is still going strong. Just listen to any Godiva chocolate or recent airline commercial and you’ll probably hear excerpts from an opera. On Tuesday, June 17, at 7:30pm, Pequot Library hosts, “A Night at the Opera!” The 2014 OSI Young Artists New York City Opera Singers, in summer residence at Fairfield University, sing famous operatic arias. Enjoy this opportunity to hear the rising opera stars of tomorrow in the outstanding acoustics of Pequot Library’s Auditorium/Concert Hall. The young artists are part of the 2014 OSI CT Summer Intensive. They will thrill you with a program of beautiful operatic arias. From the vocal fireworks of the bel canto era, to the drama of Verdi and Puccini, let yourself be transported by these timeless masterworks.


The performance will consist of duets and trios in show-stopping scenes from favorite operas. It will be a delightful mix of engaging, well-known, and short pieces. Come meet the artists at a reception following the performance.
