On Saturday, January 11, OperaHub, Boston’s most intimate, accessible opera company, will perform for the first time in the Arts in the Village concert series in Rehoboth, MA. The evening will start with a recital of art songs and arias, including Delibes' “Les filles de Cadix” and Poulenc's “Nos souvenirs qui chantent.”
Then the singers will shift gears to present a Choose-Your-Own Opera performance. In this original cabaret, the audience is put in the driver’s seat to navigate choices at key plot points. Which characters do you favor? Should the night end in tragic death or revelry? OperaHub’s pianist and quintet of singers weave together these choices using some of the most beloved arias and ensembles of Mozart, Bizet, Verdi, and more. Hailed by audience members as “hilarious, charming, and fascinating” and “highly inventive,” this program offers dramatic entertainment combined with musical excellence.
OperaHub’s director, Christee Lee Gibson, performs as a singer and actress in opera, plays, music theatre, and song recitals. She will be joined by soprano Chelsea Lewis, mezzo-soprano Alexandra Dietrich, tenor Adrian Jones, and bass-baritone Ian Pomerantz. The troupe will be accompanied by pianist Mark McNeill.
This concert will take place on Saturday, January 11, at 7:30 p.m., at Goff Memorial Hall, 124 Bay State Road, in Rehoboth, MA 02769. Admission is $16 for adults, $14 for seniors, and $6 for students and children. The doors open at 7:00 p.m., and tickets are available at the door. First-come, first-seated. Cash and checks only.
