Witches, ghosts, bats, devils, zombies, and vampires…..who SING? Yes! Get into the spirit of Halloween and enjoy a ghoulish good time when the Marigny Opera House hosts members of the cast and chorus of The Vampire – New Orleans Opera’s opening production of the 2013-14 season. You’ll be treated to a 90-minute concert of haunting excerpts from opera, operetta, and musical theater on Saturday, October 5th at 8pm. Admission is free, with a suggested donation of $15. Come in costume and mingle with the musicians – if you dare!
This is a family-friendly event – bring the kids!
Tickets will be on sale for performances of The Vampire – Fri. Oct. 11 at 8pm and Sun. Oct. 13 at 2:30pm at the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts
The Marigny Opera House is a wonderful venue – if you’ve never been there, come check out the most “happening” space in town!
The musical selections are not just for connoisseurs of the art form – they will include the rollicking “Witch’s Ride” from Hansel and Gretel (Humperdinck)/Mephistophele’s sinister aria from Faust (Gounod)/the duet “You were dead, you know!” from Candide (Bernstein), the Queen of the Night’s aria from The Magic Flute (Mozart), and the spooky opening chorus from The Vampire (Marschner).
