The second installment of OperaLesque was mounted at the ATP Garage August 23-25 to sold out crowds. The August production marked the return of 5 world-class professional opera singers:
Sharon Apostolou - New York City Opera
Glenn Seven Allen - New York City Opera
Melanie Long - New York City Opera
Jorrell Williams - Metropolitan Opera, Jazz at Lincoln Center
Marcy Richardson - Company XIV
This time around, the performance was inspired by a mixture of the world-famous Moulin Rouge and classic circus acts complete with popcorn and adult sno-cones for sale. A sexy mix of song and aerial acts, including skilled pole dancing in the middle of the room, popped up around the room. OperaLesque was made possible by the Tamarack Foundation, Alpine Village Market, Harlow/Harlette, and Fun Beverage.
