The Tinder Opera hits the stage

Readers, do you remember The Tinder Opera?

Next month, Opera Carolina is presenting the world stage premiere of the award-winning Connection Lost: (l’opera di Tinder) as part of National Opera Week. Along with The Tinder Opera is Samuel Barber’s A Hand of Bridge and Menotti’s The Telephone, the programme happens on November 3rd, 7pm at D9 Brewing Company, and November 4th, 8pm at the Warehouse Performing Arts Center. The “unconventional production” is conducted by Emily Jarrell Urbanek and directed by Jessica Zingher. Tickets start at $25.

The Tinder Opera was written by composer Scott Joiner and librettist Adam Taylor, and it was originally produced for film by Galaxy 454 Productions and the Rainy Park Opera Company. Their next film opera collaboration is Something Blue (L’opera del Bachelor), which features a cast of 30 - led by Joiner and soprano Jessica Fishenfeld - and a 10-piece chamber orchestra. The film premieres on December 14, 8pm at Miller Recital Hall at the Manhattan School of Music.
