New Camerata Opera’s Camerata Piccola presents a double-bill of two children’s operas: Peter Rabbit, arranged by Stan Lucy, and Rumpelstiltskin, arranged by Victor Khodadad for students in Harlem, NY.
Both Lacy and Khodadad will direct their operas, and Alla Milchtein will accompany the performers on piano.
Peter Rabbit is a rollicking, action-packed introduction to the world of classical music, featuring the timeless melodies of Gaetano Donizetti. Stan Lucy, New Camerata Opera co-founder, and Development Director used Beatrix Potter’s timeless classic to pen the libretto, and set the story to the music of Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore.
Rumpelstiltskin is an incarnation of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale set to the music of Mozart’s masterpiece, Così fan tutte. Victor Khododad, New Camarata Opera co-founder and Outreach Director, arranged the piece. Though many elements of this adaption are faithful to the original fairy tale, modern day themes such as gender equality, world peace, and social justice are woven into the story.
