Opera Vermont is a new partnership among three highly esteemed cultural institutions that represent the geographic length of the state: Highland Center for the Performing Arts in Greensboro in the north, BARN OPERA in Brandon in the center, and Southern Vermont Arts Center in Manchester in the south.
Brandon’s BARN OPERA is a restless, voracious creature. Barely settled into its home on Pearl Street, it has forged new partnerships and begun new programs that extend the company’s influence well beyond its trademark barn.
The production was adapted by Josh Collier, BARN OPERA’s Artistic Director, from Jules Massenet’s 19th-century work Werther, a classic opera of ill-fated lovers.
On Wednesday the 15th, the company’s artistic director and renowned tenor, Josh Collier, performed the devotional at the Statehouse in Montpelier to open the day’s House session, at the invitation of Brandon’s State Representative, Stephanie Jerome.
Barn Opera’s founder and Artistic Director, Josh Collier, recently posted a video on Barn Opera’s website detailing his “tough-but-necessary” decision to cancel this spring’s in-person performances.
The Barn Opera of Brandon will be staging a romantic comic opera just ahead of Valentine’s Day this coming Friday and Saturday, Feb. 11-12.
