Creators in Concert: Jake Heggie

Jenna Simeonov

The National Opera Center continues its Creators in Concert series on March 15, 7pm EST with a presentation of composer Jake Heggie and selections of his music.

Heggie sees performances of his operas this season at The Dallas Opera, The Atlanta Opera, Los Angeles Opera, and the Kennedy Center, and the time is right to hear him present live excerpts from his work. Heggie will take the piano, along with soprano Talise Trevigne, mezzo Elise Quagliata, tenor Stephen Costello and baritone Joseph Lattanzi. The four singers have been involved in the workshopping and performance history of Heggie’s works, and with the in-demand American composer, they’ll perform selections from Moby-Dick, Dead Man Walking, Three Decembers and more.

If you’re in New York, you can catch Jake Heggie in the Creators in Concert series, live at The National Opera Center’s Marc A. Scorca Hall (330 Seventh Avenue), next Tuesday at 7pm EST; tickets are $25, or $10 for OPERA America Members, available at or by calling 212.796.8620.
