Classic Sunday: New Rochelle Opera at Hudson Park

The New Rochelle Council on the Arts is bringing Shakespeare and opera to Hudson Park this summer. In addition to its popular series of Summer Sounds Concerts on Wednesday and Fridays nights, NRCA will present two “Classic Sundays”: On Sunday, August 4th  CLASSIC SUNDAY WITH OPERA will showcase New Rochelle Opera performing favorites from opera, operetta and musical theater at 4 pm.

Begun with only a few props and bits of scenery and a nucleus of young, enthusiastic singers, New Rochelle Opera has been thrilling audiences with imaginative and sensitive stagings of full opera productions since its inception in 1984.  Critics and audiences alike have praised the brilliance and professionalism of the performances, while wondering at the incredibly low ticket prices:  In 2019 Westchester Magazine awarded New Rochelle Opera a “Best of Westchester” award for “Best Underappreciated Arts Organization.”

Founded by Camille Coppola and Billie Tucker, New Rochelle Opera’s mission is to create a deeper understanding and appreciation of live opera, and to provide top quality, professional opera performances to local people who would not ordinarily be able to afford such an experience.  At the same time, it also provides aspiring young professional singers an opportunity to showcase their talents in a full-length opera production.
