Operagasmic Production of the Week!

by Christie Connolley

I love to arrive early to the opera.  For one, I want to sit down and see what everyone else is wearing…. the gowns, the sequins, THE SHOES!  Once that is done, I delve into the program!  I want to read the ‘who’s who, all of the singers’ bios, and the miniature reproductions of their glossy 8 X 10′s (which I usually go back to during intermission and estimate how many years ago that photo was taken), the director’s notes, the conductor’s notes!  It is one of the best parts of going to the opera!  So let Operagasm get you ready with the down low on new and exciting upcoming productions.

The Operagasmic Production of the Week is Greenwich Music Festival’s L’Histoire du Soldat!

A musical fable about a man, a violin and a deal with the devil. Stravinsky’s effervescent score for instrumental ensemble with actors and dancers, in a new production conceived and adapted by Jack Ferver, Ted Huffman, Justin Sayre and Zack Winokur and featuring the Deviant Septet.
