Mozart's report on the premiere of Secret Gardener: My opera was performed yesterday...and was such a success that it is impossible for me to describe the applause to Mama. [T]he whole theater was so packed that a great many people were turned away. Reserve your seat today! #FintaFriday
We're gearing up for a busy spring and fall! Next month, we'll be bringing to life Mozart’s The Secret Gardener (La finta giardiniera) at the beautiful West Side Community Garden May 11-13. On June 20th, 22nd, 23rd, and 24th we will be bringing audiences the U.S. premiere of Darius Milhaud’s La mère coupable (The Guilty Mother) in The Garage, a midtown Manhattan raw space owned by famed designer and activist Kenneth Cole. And finally, this fall we will be on-site in the Hall of Saurischian Dinosaurs at the American Museum of Natural History for Rhoda and the Fossil Hunt, a new site-specific opera for family audiences with music by John Musto & libretto by Eric Einhorn.
Podesta is a man full of impulse and passion...and a touch of self-importance. Upon seeing the beautiful gardener Sandrina, he immediatly falls in love with her. Others, including Sandrina, aren't too happy about that. And thus ensues the chaos and romance of The Secret Gardener! Podesta's chic, classic look was designed by the talented Beth Goldenberg. Reserve your seat in the garden today! #onsiteopera #sitespecific #gardenart #gardenopera #secretgardensofnewyork #operaoutside #mozart #thesecretgardener #lafintagiardiniera #freeart #freeopera #upperwestside #communitygarden #podesta
