This Sunday, June 6, 2021, at 3pm in Morristown, Opera at Florham presents its spring musical finale, On the Way to the Met: A Romantic Journey through Opera from LA to the Met.
Soprano Sylvia D’Eramo from the Lindemann Young Artist Program at the Metropolitan Opera, and bass-baritone Christopher Carbin, a rising star with a flair for new opera, perform at an in-person concert held at St. Margaret’s Church, 6 Sussex Ave., Morristown.
Arranged by Opera at Florham Artistic Director Mary Pinto, the program reflects the emerging romance of D’Eramo and Carbin, a couple both on and off-stage. Selections include arias and duets from Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro and Die Zauberflöte, and Puccini’s La Bohème, and a few Broadway musical favorites.
Ms. D’Eramo is truly “on her way to the Met,” as she will debut with the Metropolitan Opera on Sept 29 as Diane in Gluck’s Iphigénie en Tauride.
A second-year member of the Met’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, she will return to the stage later in the season as Countess Ceprano in a new production of Verdi’s Rigoletto, and cover Echo in Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos.
The singers are accompanied by Pinto. Narration is provided by Mariana Karpatova.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for students. They can be purchased online or at the door.
St. Margaret Church offers a large, well-ventilated venue and follows the latest pandemic safety measures mandated by the state.
Based in Madison, Opera at Florham presents professional vocalists in recital, concert, and competition, from Opera to American songbook. The artists perform classics and rarities of opera and related musical repertoire enhanced by stories, history and facts about the music.
A nonprofit founded 39 years ago, the opera company’s mission is to bring Opera to Everyone by offering low-cost, high-quality events at home and out in the community; and to support young professional singers through performance opportunities and vocal competition.
Funding has been made possible in part by funds from Morris Arts through the New Jersey State Council of the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
