Opera Saratoga’s Winning Preview – Saturday, March 24

This Saturday, Opera Saratoga teams up with the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame for a free, hourlong sneak-peek of Rocking Horse Winner, a Dora Mavor Moore Award-winning opera that’s set to debut as part of Opera Saratoga’s double bill during the 2018 Summer Festival Season. As saratoga living previously reported, the opera, based on the D.H. Lawrence short story of the same name, is geared towards mature audiences, so the viewing might not be suitable for your entire family. (The other half of that double bill? Vinkensport.)

Admission to the event is free, starting at 3pm on Saturday, March 24, with the program, entitled “Saratoga Sings for the Win,” beginning promptly at 4pm. It’ll feature opera and musical theater selections that focus on competition, gambling, sports, risking failure and achieving victory from Rocking Horse Winner. Don’t miss the mastery of Carter Thoil (soprano), Raphaella Medina (mezzo soprano), Jordan Weatherston Pitts (tenor), Nicholas Martorano (baritone) united under the musical direction of pianist Brian Gilling.
