The Delaware Valley Opera is excited to present two productions for our 30th Anniversary Season - Strauss' Die Fledermaus and Bizet's Carmen. The Female protagonist in both of these operas is a powerful woman, headstrong and self-aware. Rosalinda is urbane, drinking champagne and leading the dance, while Carmen is a gypsy full of passion and danger.
We are presenting both operas in English to enhance the immediacy of the music and heighten your experience, as you follow the drama and let the music take you on a wonderful journey. Some of the singers are local and others come into our area from Manhattan to spend a few weeks in staging rehearsals and music coaching. It can take up to a year to learn a leading role, and the staging adds another layer of performance skills. We are always astounded at the talents of our younger singers, some of whom are making their debut performance in opera and other musicians and singers who have years of experience.
Join us to discover the delights of opera right in your own backyard, at the Tusten Theater in Narrowsburg NY. Tickets on sale now!
