Apotheosis Opera Inaugural Production: Tannhäuser and the Song Contest at Wartburg by Richard Wagner
New York, NY | Brown University Club in New York
El Museo del Barrio, 1230 Fifth Avenue (at 104th Street)
3:00 – 7:00 pm, Performance
7:30 – 9:00 pm, Post-performance reception at an area restaurant (location TBD)
Brown grads Matthew Jaroszewicz ’12 and Zach Blumenstein ’15 are changing the face of opera in New York. Impelled by the belief that opera’s powerful drama and transcendent music need not be confined to the exclusive world of the Metropolitan Opera, Zach and Matthew founded a new opera company, Apotheosis Opera, with the goal of performing opera's greatest works in English at an affordable price. The Brown Club in New York invites you to join them for Apotheosis Opera's inaugural production: Richard Wagner's Tannhäuser and the Song Contest at Wartburg, fully-staged, in English translation. Tannhäuser, the story of a minstrel-knight who is torn between the pleasures of the flesh and the love of a pure maiden, contains some of Wagner's most arresting melodies and devastating drama. By performing this powerful and accessible work in English, Apotheosis is bringing opera down to earth and making it appealing to a wider audience. Apotheosis is the city's only company aside from the Met that mounts full productions of works of the size and ambition of Tannhäuser. As such, it provides a unique opportunity for emerging singers to cut their teeth on major roles. Cost: $15/ticket. Contact: via email. RSVP: Online. Tickets will be distributed by a Brown Club representative in the theater lobby prior to the performance.

Tony thought he left this all behind as he built a life for himself, and his career has provided him with a secure retirement and an amicable relationship with his ex-wife and daughter, who now has a family of her own. But when he is presented with a mysterious legacy, he is forced to revise his estimation of his own nature and place in the world. Cost: $6-$9 for dinner provided. Contact/RSVP: Nancy Turaj ’62.
