From Classics to Contemporary:
A Fundraiser for
Opera Theatre of Montclair

Sunday, October 21, 2018   
6-10 PM

The address will be revealed upon purchase of your ticket.

Opera Theatre of Montclair will present a unique concert featuring operatic excerpts composed within the last 50 years complemented by the classics that may have inspired the composers. This event will take place at a remarkable Upper Montclair home owned by a noted arts philanthropist and collector of 20th and 21st century art. This gallery-like modernist home with excellent acoustics will serve as the perfect backdrop for OTM's artists to sing a range of repertoire - from Handel to new works by young, up-and-coming composers in the field of opera. The premise is to match a newer work with a classic work (similar tonalities, themes, settings, etc.).

Come support OTM's new season while taking tours of this magnificent home, gardens and awe-inspiring art collection as well as enjoying champagne at the catered reception. Then sit back and watch some of OTM's most beloved artists (and some new faces) perform a diverse and challenging program with a fun and informative narration.

Space is limited: please purchase your tickets no later than Thursday, October 18.

Artists include international countertenor Nicholas Tamagna, sopranos Heather Bobeck, Stacey Canterbury, Laura Kosar and Mia Riker-Norrie, mezzo sopranos Cornelia Lotito and Rusti Ropac, and actor Craig Dudley performing selections by Handel, Rimsky-Korsakov, Copland, Bernstein, up and coming American composer Samuel Zagnit, Tom Cipullo, Jonathan Dove, John Adams and a Shakespeare monologue.
