“OPERA SOUP” was created for children in kindergarten through second grade and family audiences. This audience interactive show begins with an explanation of opera fundamentals (the “main ingredients”), and culminates into an operatic version of the /“Itsy, Bitsy Spider”/ song, which is performed with participants from the audience. The show is approximately 45 minutes long, after which time will be allotted for questions and answers. (Note: shows can be tailored to accommodate specific school themes or celebrations. For example, during African American History Month an aria from an opera about the life of Harriet Tubman and the underground-railroad can be integrated into the show upon request).

A Musical Toast to Marian Anderson

“A MUSICAL TOAST TO MARIAN ANDERSON” is designed for third grade through middle school students and family audiences. The legacy of African American Contralto, Marian Anderson is explored by integrating historical narrative with classical song repertoire. The presentation begins when the performer, dressed as the sorceress “Ulrica” (from Giuseppi Verdi’s opera /Un Ballo in Maschera/), enters singing the “Invocation to the Powers of Darkness” aria. Marian Anderson made her historic debut at the Metropolitan Opera singing this role, which made her the first African American artist featured at the that opera house. The show is approximately 45 minutes long and there will be time for questions and answers after the presentation.

“THAT SPICEY GYPSY GIRL” was developed for adaptability according to the age group (from middle-school to adult audiences). Opera is introduced with popular excerpts from Georges Bizet’s most famous opera about the feisty Spanish femme fatale, “Carmen.” This audience interactive presentation uses castanets, dance, and popular aria excerpts from /Carmen/. The show is 45 minutes long with a question and answer segment following the program.

“SONGS OF PASSION AND LOVE” featuring multiple Grammy® nominee Allison Brewster-Franzetti at the piano, is an elegant evening of well-known arias and songs from the classical and music theatre repertoire. The presentation is ideal for school fundraisers, corporations, embassies, universities, museums, libraries, and private parties.
