Shameless Self Promotion: Opera After Hours

I'd love anyone and everyone to come to Opera After Hours this Thursday at the Zipper Room. Details below...or you can read about it in on the New Yorker web site.

OPERA AFTER HOURS:
A subversive evening of opera and song
April 17th, 2008, 8:00 PM, The Zipper Factory


By Daniel Felsenfeld and Jennifer Griffith


Directed by Christopher Alden


featuring
THE DRESSING ROOM and DREAM PRESIDENT by Jennifer Griffith
THE BLOODY CHAMBER by Daniel Felsenfeld, libretto by Elizabeth Isadora Gold


with
Michael Zegarski, Constance Hauman, Jessica Miller-Rauch, and Amy Van Roekel


Charity Wicks, Musical Director
Terese Wadden, Production Designer
Susan Whelan, Stage Manager
Jana Llynn, Production Supervisor


Based on the Angela Carter novella of the same name, THE BLOODY CHAMBER re-envisions
the Bluebeard myth at the cusp of the Modern age. THE DRESSING ROOM explores how a
mezzo-soprano sick of playing boys, and her cross-dressing dresser both long for a more
glamorous wardrobe. In DREAM PRESIDENT, the former Commander in Chief reflects on his
past, as ex-flames critique him on matters political and sexual.


The Zipper Factory is at 336 W. 37th St. (between 8th & 9th Aves.)
For tickets, please go to www.zippertheater.com or call 212.352.3101
For dinner reservations at The Zipper Factory Tavern, please call 212.695.4600

If only I could... I live in Edinburgh and flights, hotels and such would make the trip a bit costly!

But to return the favour... visit my blog at http://interchangingidioms.blogspot.com for updates toward my own concert on 4 June 2008.

I'll stop back by to see how the opera went!!!
