For this one-of-a kind event, the operamission returns to the Gershwin Hotel at 27th & 5th at the invitation of Neke Carson, this time bringing along dramaturg Cori Ellison and a number of other Mozart ‘instigators.’

    I wonder if the Maestro @ Merola thinks it’s odd that I keep warming up for Elixir by playing excerpts from Così? Hmmm. :-)

    So very excited!
