"A Night of Verismo"

For the first time, Espresso Opera is presenting highlights of Adriana Lecouvreur and almost complete Cavalleria Rusticana with piano for the first performance (Nov. 11, 2007 6pm) at St. John's Lutheran Church in the West Village(our home) but adding a performance with the Riverside Opera Company and the Richmond County Orchestra on Staten Island on Nov. 18th 3pm, Staten Island. This gives the artists a chance to work through the role with piano first and then taking it to the next step and performing the same music with an orchestra.
