The premier performances of P’Opera were on March 24th at Fuego. Some 100 people watched and applauded two sellout programs.
P’Opera is a concert program of the Nevada Opera Chorus. The name implies the ‘popular’ orientation of the music.
Performances are planned for local restaurants and other gatherings. The program is intended to raise funds for Nevada Opera in addition to providing our choral artists opportunities to enjoy performing and grow professionally.
The ‘popular’ music will have eclectic sources: Boardway, light opera/operetta, Gilbert and Sulivan and even madrigals in addition to works, primariiy well-known, from grand opera.
