MAY 21-23, 8:30PM- Opera on Tap Colorado presents a visual album of four song cycles featuring live Colorado singers and video artists from across the US featuring Richard Strauss Four Last Songs/Vier letzte Lieder, Ernesto Cordero’s Four Works for Voice and Guitar, Robert Owens’ Mortal Storm, and Nkeiru Okoye’s Brooklyn Cinderella.
This hybrid performance will be at our drive-in, which means all audience members in their cars, with audio transmitted via FM radio.
“We wanted to do something on a larger scale while responding to the limitations that COVID-19 has created for live performance.” Said Opera on Tap Colorado co-managing diva Eve Orenstein. “We came up with the concept of pairing video artists with song cycles – groups of songs that share a narrative theme – to create something that would be collaborative and also safe for singers and audience members. The videos will bring the music to life and can be experienced from home or in a socially distanced performance setting, like a drive-in.”
Five Colorado singers, Nnamdi Nwankwo, Asha Romeo, Jerome Síbulo, Luisa Marie Rodriguez, and Julie Silver Campbell perform four song cycles that were selected by the Opera on Tap Colorado singers.
