Beatrix Potter’s beloved mischievous hero runs into gardener MacGregor. It escapes through the skin of the teeth, while Donizetti’s score (borrowed from L’elisir d’amore) accompanies a dramatic chase. Beautiful arias set the tone for the anguishes of Momma Rabbit and the helpless narrator as the adventure unfolds. Young spectators, costumed with fluffy ears and tails, complete the cast in the non-singing roles of Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail. This event is free and open to the public.

(CamerataWorks). It is thanks to these multifaceted operations that NCO has succeeded in bringing countless new opera lovers into the cultural fold. The organization has been hailed as “the future of opera” and is one of the most active and active opera companies in New York.
