New Brew: The Sex-Ed Edition
June 3, 2016 – 8pm
Barbes (376 9th St., Brooklyn)
$10 suggested donation
New Brew brings you a night of sex-ed, opera style, featuring selections from two operas-in-development: The Inner Circle, by Daniel Felsenfeld and Kate Gale, and We’ve Got Our Eye On You, by Nkeiru Okoye and David Cote.
Loosely inspired by Greek myth, and set in ancient times, We’ve Got Our Eye on You delivers a humorous but uplifting message about giving in to desire prematurely. The Inner Circle tells the story of a group of researchers in the 1940s, led by the charismatic Professor Kinsey, whose lives are tangled in his quest to capture and revolutionize the study of human sexual behavior.
La Cenerentola: The Playground Opera
June 16 – 9am and 11:15am
The Playground, Public School 129
425 W 130th St., New York, NY 10029
Space is limited. Please RSVP to playgroundopera.eventbrite.com
Returning to Harlem PS 129 for the second year, Opera on Tap Jr. will present two performances of a new Playground Opera based on Rossini’s Cinderella, produced in collaboration with three of PS 129’s Third grade classes.
The Playground Operas is a school day residency program that immerses students in the production and performance of an opera. With the guidance of professionals working in the field today, students explore the operatic experience from the first conception of an opera’s production to the exciting culmination of its performance. The stage? Their own schoolyard playground.
Putting the ‘country’ into the Italian countryside, this production of La Cenerentola will feature a new score arranged by Jeff Hudgins for banjo, fiddle, accordian and bass. Learn more at this link
