Divas at the Latimer House
In partnership with Wilmington’s Latimer House (home of the Lower Cape Fear Historical Society), Opera Wilmington presents a streamed concert by three wonderful present-day singers performing the repertoires of three 19th-century sopranos: Elizabeth Taylor Greenfield, Jenny Lind, and Sissieretta Jones.
Hosted by Opera Wilmington’s Artistic Director Nancy King, this special event will feature performances by (from left, above) Jennifer Wiggins, Constance Paolantonio, and Jemeesa Yarborough, from the quiet grandeur of a 160-year-old Victorian home.
You’ll enjoy operatic and art song selections along with a special virtual tour by Jessie Labell, Manager of The Latimer House, presenting the history of musical entertainment in the Victorian home. Travel back in time and experience the ravishing voices of three divas in an opulent setting!
Tickets are available through The Latimer House.
January and March, 2021
We’re going to have fun with Giacomo Puccini (he won’t actually join us, but we’re sure he would be amused) in a pair of events early in 2021.
We have an exciting food and (armchair) travel adventure in store for fans of Italian cuisine and culture. Your magic (virtual) carpet awaits this January as we treat you to a live-streamed demonstration of a culinary favorite from Lucca, Puccini’s home town. And then we’ll whisk you off for a tour of the Puccini Museum in Lucca.
You didn’t know that many dogs are aspiring opera singers? While their howls may not be music to your ears, these dogs are begging to be dressed up as an opera character and paraded before an adoring public. The Pooch-ini Parade will be held outdoors with plenty of social distancing and fresh air. Prizes! Treats! Extra points for dog and human collaborative costuming! Start planning your role(s) now, and we’ll let you know as details are finalized.
