Pleased to announce I have been offered a role with Pacific Opera Project for their production of The Merry Widow (Die lustige Witwe), by Franz Lehar, in February and March!
POP is well known and highly regarded for their inventive productions and high quality singers so I am stoked to be a part of this exciting show (which certainly doesn’t disappoint in terms of inventiveness), here’s their description of the production:
Yeehaw! POP starts the 2016 Season by putting our spin on one of the most popular operettas of all time, Franz Lehar’s The Merry Widow. With a new book and lyrics by Artistic Director Josh Shaw and an orchestral arrangement by Music Director Stephen Karr, the plot is transported from the embassies and dancehalls of Paris to the saloons of the Old West just after the California gold rush. A cast of nearly thirty will sing and dance the night away at the quaint Ebell Club of Highland Park for seven performances, complete with orchestra, food, and wine. For the first time all seating is assigned at the Ebell Club. So pick your seat or table early to get the very best view. Get your tickets here: https://app.arts-people.com/index.php?show=60381
