Opera Cowpokes Alive!
August 3, 4, 5, 2013
Presented by Triphammer Arts Inc. at the CRS Barn Studio
The CRS Barn Studio proudly presents Opera Cowpokes
Alive! Saturday through Monday, August 3, 4, and 5 at 7:30pm at the CRS
Barn Studio 2622 North Triphammer Road, Ithaca. Last presented in the
summer of 2007, this family and cult favorite returns to its beautiful
home setting, on the CRS Growers organic vegetable farm overlooking
Cayuga Lake, 1.5 miles north of The Shops at Ithaca Mall. In case of
rain, the performance will be held indoors at the same location.
Tickets are $20 general admission, $15 for seniors and $10 for students
and will be available at the door.
Opera Cowpokes Alive! features opera stars performing western and
country/western songs, favorite opera choruses with newly crafted
lyrics, and traditional folk tunes with a timely twist. You'll enjoy
melodies from Grand Opera to Grand Ol' Opry, as new songs and new
dances join perennial favorites like “Cool Water” and “Ragtime Cowboy
Joe.” Producers Steven Stull and Jeanne Goddard break down the barriers
between "classical" and "popular" performance and bring together an
impressive collection of musicians and dancers from both worlds in
Opera Cowpokes Alive!.
The nationally and internationally known cast of soloists includes Steven Stull, Carl Johengen, John
Rozzoni, George Cordes, Todd Thomas, and Rich Crawley. The Opera
Cowpokes Orchestra is led by Peter Chwazik
on bass, with John White
on piano, Joe Davoli and Max
Buckholtz on fiddle, and Dana Paul on guitar. Jeanne Goddard creates
the cowgirl choreography and leads the ensemble of dancers.
” Here’s what past audiences have said about Opera Cowpokes Alive!:
"You blew my socks off - boots and all!"
"We had a rip-roarin', dirt-kickin' time!"
"I've never considered myself either a country or a
western fan, but was mighty taken by [your] renditions...."
So, grab your boots and hang on to your hat, Lucia di Lammermoor meets
Lucille in Opera Cowpokes Alive!
