Opera Huntsville received a $2500 Community Impact Grant from Madison Visionary Partners towards a series of public performances in Madison called Madison Marvels.
"Opera Huntsville wants to share our love of opera across North Alabama,” said Kenisha Hill Phillips, General Manager of Opera Huntsville. “Opera Bytes started as a digital project and has since transitioned to mostly in-person performances. We've performed all over Huntsville, so it's time to perform in other cities in North AL. We're especially grateful to MVP for this collaboration.”
Opera in the Park was held September 19, 2023 at Home Place Park. Around 75 attendees enjoyed a selection of opera pieces under the stars on a beautiful fall evening.
Next, Opera Huntsville brought Goldie B. Locks and the Three Singing Bears, an child-friendly opera twist on the Goldilocks story, to the Madison Public Library on November 4.
Opera Huntsville has one more performance planned for Spring 2024 to finish out the Madison Marvels series. One Petite Music de Nuit is tentatively scheduled for March 19, 2024, at 7:00 p.m. at Trinity Baptist Church. Look for more information on this performance soon.
