ABOUT THE OPERA
The Beautiful Bridegroom follows Terentia, a widow with two daughters of marrying age, as she looks for a spouse…not for her daughters, but for herself! Realizing that Terentia is not being sensible, the cheeky matchmaker, Madam Kirsten, hatches a plot to get Terentia on the right track. The broadcast will begin at 8PM via MassOpera’s YouTube page
With the doldrums of winter setting in after the Holidays, MassOpera and Opera on Tap are thrilled to showcase some incredibly talented Boston-based artists as we present a special broadcast of MassOpera’s 2018 production of the comedic opera, The Beautiful Bridegroom, by Boston-based composer Dan Shore, on Saturday, January 23rd at 8 PM
Prior to the broadcast, MassOpera and Opera on Tap invite audiences to attend a virtual pre-show event entitled Madame Kirsten’s Pregame Dating Show, a fun-filled, boozey pre-performance featuring cast members from The Beautiful Bridegroom and Opera on Tap; including the evening's hosts Abigail Whitney Smith as the lusty widow, Terentia, and Emily Harmon as the sly matchmaker, Madam Kirsten. The pre-show begins at 7 PM, prior to the broadcast. Opera on Tap will provide recipes to themed, signature cocktails for audiences to create and enjoy at home! The pre-show will be hosted via Zoom, and participants are asked to register by clicking the linked banner below.
If you are able, we ask that you donate what you can when registering, as both MassOpera and Opera on Tap Boston, continue to find innovative ways to employ out-of-work artists! The two organizations will split all donations equally.
