Opera Fusion presented a double bill of Giacomo Puccini’s touching SUOR ANGELICA and the comic farce GIANNI SCHICCHI as 25 singers participated in the Renee Greenberg Emerging Artists on September 13th and 14th at 7:30 pm at the Sunshine Cathedral, Fort Lauderdale.
Each summer Opera Fusion sponsors a unique career development program for young singers in South Florida — the Renee Greenberg Emerging Artists Project — or sometimes we affectionately call it Opera Boot Camp. Over 4 weeks, we bring 10-12 singers together to work with nationally renowned opera coaches and stage directors to hone their craft and provide invaluable experience as they launch their careers. And we do something that very few opera companies do — we don’t charge the singers to participate! Through the generosity of our patrons and sponsors, we are able to underwrite their tuition and cover the costs of producing the performance to showcase the amazing young talent we have in the area.
