Prior to the broadcast, MassOpera and Opera on Tap invite audiences to attend a virtual pre-show entitled Madam Kirsten’s Pregame Dating Show, a fun-filled, boozey pre-performance featuring cast members from The Beautiful Bridegroom and Opera on Tap; including hosts for the evening Abigail Whitney Smith as the lusty widow, Terentia, and Emily Harmon as the sly matchmaker, Madam Kirsten. The pre-show begins at 7 PM, prior to the broadcast. Opera on Tap will provide recipes to themed, signature cocktails for audiences to create and enjoy at home! The pre-show will be hosted via Zoom, and participants are asked to register by clicking the linked banner below.
ABOUT THE OPERA – The Beautiful Bridegroom follows Terentia, a widow with two daughters of marrying age, as she looks for a spouse…not for her daughters, but for herself! Realizing that Terentia is not being sensible, the cheeky matchmaker, Madam Kirsten, hatches a plot to get Terentia on the right track. The broadcast will begin at 8 PM via MassOpera’s YouTube page.
Join us for the pre-show, Saturday, January 23rd at 7 PM, followed by the broadcast at 8 PM. The total running time for this is approximately 2 hours, including both the pre-show and the broadcast.
