Following four young artists in 19th-Century Paris, La bohème is an ongoing struggle between love, poverty, loyalty and sacrifice. It is often referred to as Puccini’s finest work, both for its balance of comedy and tragic romance and its cultural influence on generations of viewers. With two shows at The Kate and a special "in the round" performance at Kent Hall, this will be our most spectacular production of 2018. Tickets for The Kate are available on their website, and tickets for Kent Hall will go on sale soon.
There's always excitement surrounding our Spring and Fall productions, but did you know we also produce a series of Summer Concerts?
In this episode of Behind the Curtain, Simon discusses our exciting Summer Concert Series. Filmed at the Old Stonington Lighthouse Museum, the site for the upcoming Music at the Lighthouse, get a sneak peek at the beautiful venues hosting this year’s events. Whether it’s an oceanfront Gala, a concert in the park or a picnic overlooking the bay, we’ve got a concert for you, and we hope to see you there!
Salt Marsh Opera has been providing Southeastern CT and Southern RI with well-received Opera since 2001. Our efforts to grow Opera are made possible through the generosity of our community foundations, corporate sponsors and individual donors. Your generous support helps us expand and enrich our Kids Love Opera! program in a number of ways. It helps create dynamic, multi-media guides to accompany classroom instruction. Support also enables us to deliver complete productions to multiple schools in varying regions, such as this year’s original opera Jack and Jill and the Happening Hill!
With different levels of corporate and individual sponsorship, there’s always a way to help reach and inspire local communities. To see how you can become a sustainer and help bring music to life for children throughout Southeastern Connecticut and Southern Rhode Island click here.
