Bob’s singers are hard at work preparing scenes for our performance at the upcoming Twin Cities Pride Celebration on Saturday, June 27. The cast is working diligently in nightly rehearsals, reaching for the perfect balance of musical and dramatic perfection. Selections for Pride include a wide variety of pieces, new and old: scenes from Conrad Susa’s Transformations, Ambrose Thomas’ Hamlet, Mozart’s Clemenza di Tito, Alexander Borodin’s Kismet, and world premieres of several pieces by Opera Bob’s own composer-in-residence, Dr. Phil Fried.
Performances will take place in the History Pavilion on the east side of the lake in Loring Park. Opera Bob will take the stage at 2:30pm on Saturday, June 27 and 1:30pm on Sunday, June 28. The forecast is for beautiful weather, and it will be a great day to enjoy opera in the park. Come see and hear Bob’s best!
