Opera Saratoga public performances

Local

Opera Saratoga will present Opera-To-Go performances of Pinocchio to over 50 public and private schools throughout the region from February 25, 2019 to March 30, 2019.

Each year, Opera Saratoga tours a production to schools throughout the greater Capital Region and lower Adirondack regions of NY, and the lower Hudson Valley.

The performances feature charismatic professional artists who love to share their joy of music and theater through opera, as well as through question and answer sessions where students have the opportunity to meet the artists and learn about the music and what it takes to put on a performance.

Opera Saratoga Artistic and General Director Lawrence Edelson has once again hired a former directing fellow of the company’s nationally acclaimed Young Artist program to direct the new production.

“Meaghan Deiter is a very talented emerging director who most recently served as the Assistant Director on our critically acclaimed productions of The Consul and The Merry Widow during our 2018 Summer Festival. Meaghan has created a whimsical, fairytale production that entertains while introducing children to the joy of opera,” said Edelson.

In addition to Opera Saratoga’s in-school performances, there are seven free public performances of Pinocchio scheduled, to ensure families throughout the region have access to opera. Performance dates, times and venues are as follows:
