Hartford Opera Theater
Hartford Opera Theater is pleased to present our 10th annual New in November Festival performance on Sunday, November 17 at 7:00pm. The performance will be at the Cathedral House at Christ Church Cathedral in historic downtown Hartford, directly across the street from Hartford Stage. HOTOpera is the only opera company that exclusively performs in the city of Hartford. This year, we will be performing the following works: Opera Kardashian by Dana Kaufman with libretto by Tom Swift; The Séance by Timothy Peterson with libretto by Sara Fetherolf; A Womb with a View by Beth Ratay with libretto by Rich Orloff; Biennale by Paul Richards with libretto by Wendy Steiner; and Starsong by Elliot Yokum with libretto by Sarah Barker.
***This years' New in November features operas with adult themes. Recommended for ages 16 and up.***
Hartford Opera Theater’s New in November festival was established in 2010 with a two-fold mission: to seek out and encourage contemporary opera composers and to create an opportunity for the community to experience performances of these new works. Each year, a committee reviews a competitive pool of submissions and selects 4-6 10 minute operas to create an evening of short operatic vignettes. The preparation for New in November is reminiscent of a 24 hour play festival in that the operas are brought from "page to stage" in a condensed and intense period. Once rehearsals begin, we assemble artists from many disciplines: singers, pianists, composers, directors, and conductors who collaborate to make New in November a fun and thought-provoking evening.
