Update: this contest is now closed. Congratulations to Jeff Newberry for winning a pair of free tickets to Opera To Go on March 25!

One of the most exciting projects that I'm involved in this season is the remount of five six operas from Tapestry New Opera Works' Opera To Go program over the last 8 years. So once again I am proud to present another pair of free tickets to Opera To Go for the evening of Thursday, March 25 at the Distillery District's Fermenting Cellar. Here are the operas that will be presented:

The Laurels - libretto by Michael Lewis MacLennan, music by Jeffrey Ryan.

Ice Time - libretto by Mark Brownell, music by Chan Ka Nin.

The Perfect Match - a film by Tom Diamond with libretto by Krista Dalby and music by Anthony Young.

Ashlike on the Cradle of the Wind - libretto by Jill Batson, music by Andrew Staniland.

Rosa - libretto by Camyar Chai, music by James Rolfe

The Colony - libretto by Lisa Codrington, music by Kevin Morse

Opera To Go will feature soprano Xin Wang, mezzo soprano Krisztina Szabo, tenor Keith Klassen, and baritone Peter McGillivray. Directed by Tom Diamond, with Musical Director Wayne Strongman conducting a chamber orchestra (I'm playing piano). Here's how to get your free tickets:
