Opera Saratoga-Saratoga Sings of Art and Inspiration

Opera Saratoga, will present “Saratoga Sings of Art and Inspiration” as part of the company’s commitment to provide free access to opera and song to the community.

A series of three concerts will take place, throughout the month of April, at venues including: the Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery, the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council (LARAC) and the Albany Institute of History & Art.

Laurie Rogers, Opera Saratoga’s director of music staff, has created a program featuring pieces composed by: Enrique Granados, Francis Poulenc, Igor Stravinsky, Benjamin Britten, Hugo Wolf, Ben Moore and Stephen Sondheim. It’s all inspired by great artists and works of art.

Featured singers include Soprano Christine Suits, Tenor Dominick Corbacio and Bass Baritone Jesús Murillo. “The three artists performing on this program are members of our nationally acclaimed Young Artist Program. We look forward to welcoming these gifted young singers, and to sharing this beautiful program of art inspired music with audiences in our community,” said Lawrence Edelson, Opera Saratoga’s artistic and general director.

Saratoga Sings! is a new initiative that Opera Saratoga has launched this season to increase opportunities for the public in the Capital Region to experience live opera year round. Saratoga Sings! offers free concerts and other performance events leading up to the company’s Summer Festival. These programs take place at locations that are unique to the area, and that provide opportunities for people to connect to opera in familiar settings.
