Hits and Hidden Gems of Mozart & Massenet
- Holyrood Church 715 W 179th St New York, NY, 10033 United States (map)
Enjoy hits and explore hidden gems of two masterful composers: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Jules Massenet. Both were celebrated in their day and prolific in their operatic output, yet only a few of their operas have become standard fare for modern audiences.
We revisit familiar favorites and dust off forgotten treasures, presenting arias and scenes from four operas: Le nozze di Figaro, one of Mozart's most famous operas; his Idomeneo, known to some but rarely performed; Massenet's Cendrillon, a version of the Cinderella tale that is enjoying renewed interest; and his Chérubin, the opera that continues the story of young Cherubino after the last curtain in Le nozze di Figaro.
Come for the music, stay for the reception, and mingle with our wonderful Project 2 Artists.
