Amahl & the Night Visitors – Opus Concert Theatre 2019 & 4Jan20

Fully-staged, sung in English accompanied by the Opus Concert Theatre Chamber Orchestra, we proudly present Gian Carlo Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors. A poor widow and her young disabled son, Amahl, are on the verge of starvation, when a knock at the door reveals Three Kings, each bearing gifts as they follow the star in the East. When Amahl and his mother learn the purpose of their journey, lives are changed forever. Each show includes an entertaining pre-show lecture, and a Meet and Greet the artists H’ors d’Oeuvres Receptions afterwards. Let us be a part of your Holiday Celebration. . . . → Read More: Amahl & the Night Visitors – Opus Concert Theatre 2019 & 4Jan20

Jolly Roger by Walter Leigh

Below is a “shameless plug” for an upcoming concert. 🙂 I portray the deliciously wicked Governor of Jamaica (pants role):

Rarely-performed and nearly unknown in the U.S., JOLLY ROGER arrives aboard the Liberty Ship USS JOHN W. BROWN, just in time for the Fell’s Point Privateer Festival in 2018.

No tickets required. Admission to the performance is a suggested donation $15. Donations of other amounts are also acceptable to tour the ship with or without seeing JOLLY ROGER.

This delightful and strange English operetta from 1933 offers Pirates, a ruthless Governor of Jamaica, zany misadventures, and multiple romances . . . → Read More: Jolly Roger by Walter Leigh
