Welcome to Opera del West

Opera del West presents:

The Clever Artifice of Harriet and Margaret
A Night of Women Composers

Join Opera del West for an evening celebrating female Composers.  Our prelude will be a set of Art Songs by women: Pauline Viardot Garcia, Clara Schumann, Amy Beach and Libby Larsen.  Then we will perform the New England Premiere of Leanna Kirchoff’s one-act opera, The Clever Artifice of Harriet and Margaret.  Winner of the 2014-2016 National Opera Association Chamber Opera Competition, this work depicts a cat and mouse conversation between two women sharing what seems to be a polite tea, shadowed on stage by two other singers playing their inner selves interjecting truthful commentary.  A wonderful way to celebrate National Women’s Month. Sung by Erin Merceruio Nelson, Laura DellaFera, Elena Snow and Stephanie Kacoyanis. Directed by Brenda Huggins and Music Directed by Eve Budnick.
