By Logan Martell

On August 14, 2022, Opera Orlando will open its Summer Concert Series with “(DIS) REPUTABLE: the good, bad, and questionable women of the stage.”

This program will feature soprano Emily Pulley, joined by pianist Ammon Perry Bratt, as they run through a variety of selections from figures such as nuns, nobility, hags, harlots, and more, drawing from works like “Carmen” and “The Little Mermaid,” among others.

“This season is very much a homecoming for us as we are finally able to produce our MainStage opera’s in Steinmetz Hall,” shares artistic director Grant Preisser. “And we have decided to continue that theme of home through our concert series by inviting back artists who have become a part of our opera family. I am excited to welcome back Emily Pulley in such an intimate setting where she can really show off as a singer. I know audiences will be blown away by what she and Ammon have in store!”

Tickets are available for $45, with the entire series available for $108. Admission includes a reception following each concerts, with hors d’oeuvres and wine donated by Winter Park Wine. The August 14 performance will also include a special preview presentation of OO’s upcoming season by general director Gabriel Preisser and artistic director Grant Preisser.

All performances in the series will be held at the University Club of Winter Park.
