Are you a life-long opera fan? Or perhaps intrigued, or just somewhat curious? Then this is your summer! Opera Saratoga, formerly Lake George Opera, has a full roster set to kick off it’s 50th Anniversary season beginning June 29th! This is a spectacular chance to enjoy first-class stage performances right in our backyard….we are so fortunate to have this jewel of a program available to our families, friends and guests!
Come and enjoy productions with scores by Mozart and Strauss, featuring acclaimed artists both new and returning. In one of the season’s highlights, Albany Symphony Orchestra’s Musical Director David Allen Miller will conduct Cosi Fan Tutte, a work of comic deception featuring one of Mozart’s best scores!
In addition to the Mainstage productions held at the Spa Little Theatre , there’s special events planned including the 9th Annual Opera Saratoga Ball at the Saratoga Hilton Hotel on Friday, July 1st, as well as a 50th Anniversary Concert on July 8th featuring returning guest artists from the past and accompanied by the Opera Saratoga Orchestra! A free July 4th All American Celebration concert in Congress Park sets magnificent arias against a backdrop of fireworks!
For budding artists, Opera Saratoga offers a Summer Opera Intensive (Opera Camp), which culminates in a free performance given by the campers! The Young Artist Apprentice Program, comprised of apprentice and studio artists, gives singers an opportunity to develop their craft through masterclasses, coaching, and performances. They will also be featured in free recitals!
