The second event in the FRESHLY BREWED series at OPERA America will be held this weekend on Sunday December 18th at 1:00 PM. Tickets are now on sale for The Art of the Aria with Mark Adamo.

The FRESHLY BREWED series was designed to give the public a chance to see inside ALT's flagship program, the Composer Librettist Development Program (CLDP). This Sunday, AOT invites the public into the CLDP studio during this master class with ALT’s Director of Professional Development, composer/librettist Mark Adamo. Best known for Little Women, one of the most produced American operas of all-time, Adamo’s critically acclaimed operatic work also includes Lysistrata for Houston Grand Opera, and he is currently writing The Gospel of Mary Magdalene for San Francisco Opera. During this master class, four composer/librettist teams, all Resident Artists in the CLDP, will present new arias. Guest singers soprano Katherine Jolly (New York City Opera, Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, Florida Grand Opera) and baritone Dan Kempson (Fort Worth Opera, Pittsburgh Opera, Caramoor Music Festival) will perform the arias, and artists and audiences alike will be invited to discuss the works they have heard.

What is an aria? What is its purpose dramatically and musically within the context of a larger work? Have these arias been successful in accomplishing their goals? Did they engage you? Why or why not? Is the text set well for the voice? This unique look inside the writers’ studio will give audiences an opportunity to explore the process of developing new opera, and the opportunity to meet the next generation of operatic writers – the composers and librettists who will be writing the works you will want to hear in the future!

Tickets, which include a light brunch, are available for $20 through SmartTix at http://www.smarttix.com/show.aspx?showcode=FRE49. Advance purchase is required. Due to limited seating capacity at OPERA America, tickets are strictly limited and will not be sold on the day of the event. OPERA America is located at 330 Seventh Avenue (between 28th and 29th), on the 18th Floor.
