Opera in the Heights held its annual Bravissimo gala last month at the Petroleum Club downtown. The gala has been become a large fundraiser for the company, celebrating another successful season, while at the same time generating buzz for the next season.
And what a season the group has lined up, beginning in September. First up will be Verdi’s “Rigoletto” Sept. 26 – Oct. 5. Next will be Humperdinck’s sublime “Hänsel und Gretel” from Nov. 14-23. (Personally, I’m thrilled with this one because I’ve never actually attended a production of “Hänsel”, and since I’ll be turning 50 right about that time, it’s like they were doing this just for me!)
After the turn at the end of the year, OH is really bringing the goods. Mozart’s “La clemenza di Tito” will be staged Jan. 30 to Feb. 8. And then, for the finale, Bizet’s “Carmen” will cap the season Mar. 20-29 .
