Tidewater Opera Initiative
Finding a dearth of opportunities for young local singers to hone their craft, Suzanne Oberdorfer and Kathryn Kelly founded the Tidewater Opera Initiative, a collaborative arts organization which seeks to highlight the vast and rich operatic talent the Hampton Roads area has to offer.
In conjunction with the Governor’s School for the Arts, TOI is working on their first production, Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte, performed in English, scheduled for Friday, August 16th and Saturday, August 17th at the Perry Family Theater. Cosi is one of Mozart’s finest comic operas; its charming melodies and engaging story make it a perfect reprieve from the stifling heat of a Virginia summer. The main characters will be performed by some of the area’s finest young voices; Fiordiligi - Shelly Milam, Dorabella - Suzanne Oberdorfer, Guglielmo -Marshall Severin , Ferrando - John Holman, Depsina - Kathryn Kelly, and Don Alfonso -Andrew Potter . The chorus will feature students from the Governor’s School’s vocal music program, giving them the opportunity to observe the production process from beginning to end. Our show will be directed by Alan Fisher from Governor School for the Arts and conducted by Scott Williamson from Opera Roanoke.

Wolf Trap Opera: La Traviata
Glorious music fills Verdi’s most popular opera, a poignant love story about a woman who gives up her world to live for love. The Wolf Trap Opera Company and the National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Grant Gershon, celebrate Verdi’s bicentennial birthday with a new Operascape production. Directed by José Maria Condemi, the production features a video projection design by Aaron Rhyne developed for the Filene Center. This ageless story touches on some of our most basic desires and fears in a deeply profound way, subtly underscored by Verdi’s genius. First performed in Venice in 1853, La Traviata caused a sensation because of its immoral subject, but today it is one of the world’s most frequently performed operas. Violetta Valéry – Corinne Winters; Alfredo Germont – Benjamin Bliss; Giorgio Germont – Nicholas Pallesen; with Annina – Courtney Johnson; Flora Bervoix – Alexandra Rodrick; Gastone – Miles Mykkanen; Giuseppe – Brandon Russell; Baron Douphol – Harry Greenleaf; Marquis d’Obigny – Brian Vu; Doctor Grenville – Nicholas Brownlee.

A native of Norfolk, Virginia, he holds a Bachelor of Music from the University of Michigan and is a recent graduate of the esteemed Academy of Vocal Arts. Wes has been widely acclaimed for creating the role of Cuban dissident and poet Reinaldo Arenas in the 2010 world premiere of Jorge Martín’s Before Night Falls with Fort Worth Opera. Noted critic William Madison called his performance “a tour de force. Constantly onstage, he sang in a mellow, lustrous baritone while simultaneously acting, running, jumping, and dancing. He looks like Arenas, only handsomer. For future productions, it will be difficult to find anyone else who’s up to these demands.” Visit him online at http://wesmasonstage.com/ All proceeds benefit Tidewater Opera Initiative's production of Cosi fan Tutte.

Katie Luther: the Opera
At the request of soprano Lori Lewis of Albequerque, New Mexico, Glenn Winters has written a one-woman chamber opera about the life of Katharina von Bora, who became the wife of Martin Luther. It is entitled Katie Luther: the Opera and is in three scenes. There are five nearly simultaneous premiere performances planned for Reformation Weekend, October 25-27, in five cities: Albuquerque, St. Louis, Ft. Wayne, IN, New Orleans and Baltimore. Sopranos include Elizabeth Madeiros Hogue of Norfolk , Janet Hopkins (a veteran roster artist of the Metropolitan Opera) and Kathleen Halm Simmons whose accompanist at the piano will be her husband Timothy Todd Simmons, Artistic Director of the New Orleans Opera. The team overseeing these five world premieres has set up a website at Indigogo.com at this link: http://bit.ly/15bo7fT. We have the goal of raising $50,000 to assist with the associated expenses of these performances. We hope that opera lovers will wish to be a part of bringing this story of faith, determination and courage to the stage for audiences across the country. Any dollar amount is welcome, with gifts of appreciation for various levels of support. In addition, there is a video made by Lori Lewis explaining some of the background of this project featuring audio excerpts of Mr. Winters’ music.
