Hartford Opera Theater
Hartford Opera Theater is pleased to present the world premiere of FORTUNE'S CHILDREN: A ZOOM OPERA with music and libretto by David Wolfson as our fall production. There will be two performances: Friday, October 16 and Saturday, October 17, both at 7pm.
FORTUNE’S CHILDREN: A ZOOM OPERA takes place in the not-so-distant future, at the beginning of the next pandemic. Three adult brothers of very different socioeconomic status have a Zoom meeting to discuss the thorny question of who is going to care for their elderly mother.
This opera will be music directed by the composer, David Wolfson; directed by Moira O’Sullivan; and features tenor, Darius A. Gillard as Alex; baritone, Markel Reed as Pat; and baritone, Thao Nguyen as Chris.
The performance will begin with a discussion about opera during the pandemic by Dr. Lisabeth Miller (Hartford Opera Theater Artistic Director) and Dr. Michelle Fiertek (Hartford Opera Theater Executive Director), and will conclude with a discussion with the cast and creative team.
Tickets are $20 per household and are currently on sale and can be purchased through our website at www.hartfordoperatheater.com/fortune-s-children
