'Love Between Acts..' The Baltimore Vocal Arts Foundation...January 29th and 30th

"LOVE BETWEEN ACTS - A Program of Operatic Intermezzi"

Baltimore, MD

A dynamic opera company has been born: the Baltimore Vocal Arts Foundation.

Founder and artistic director Robyn Stevens has hand-picked two wonderful casts for her January performances of La Serva Padrona ("The Servant Mistress") composed by Pergolesi and Mirena e Floro ("Mirena and Floro") composed by Gasparini and Bononcini.  Both will be performed in English.  These two short comic operas have just 2 singers each.  Soprano Kimberly Christie joins baritone Jason Buckwalter and actor Jeff Tremper to comprise the cast of The Servant Mistress.  Laura Strickling and Andrew Sauvageau will appear as Mirena and Floro. Tara Cariaso is the stage director.

You might be wondering why I am talking about opera on my real estate blog.  That's easy: my daughter, pianist Erica Rome, will be accompanying both operas, along with a violinist and a cellist.  Erica will be playing on an electronic keyboard that sounds like a harpsichord, which is how these operas were performed when they were written in the early 1700s.   She and Robyn starting working together over 15 years ago, and Erica is thrilled to be a part of this new project.

The concerts will take place at the Baltimore Theatre Project at 45 West Preston Street in downtown Baltimore city on Saturday. January 29 at 7:00pm and Sunday, January 30 at 3:00pm.  Tickets are $20; students and seniors pay $15.    Tickets can be purchased here or by calling 410-752-8558.
