Wallis Giunta, Colin Ainsworth Headline Opera Atelier’s ‘Together / Apart’

By David Salazar

Opera Atelier has announced that it will present “Together / Apart,” a one-hour virtual showcase on May 20, 2020 at 8 p.m. EDT.

The performance will feature 14 performers including soprano Measha Brueggergosman singing Mozart; Laird Mackintosh from “Phantom of the Opera;” and mezzo-Soprano Wallis Giunta singing “Non so più” from “The Marriage of Figaro.”

Other artists include soprano Meghan Lindsay, mezzo-soprano Allyson McHardy, soprano Melody Louledjian, mezzo-soprano Mireille Lebel, soprano Karine White, and tenor Colin Ainsworth, among others.

“The arts provide a powerful source of emotional and spiritual support in times of crisis,” says Marshall Pynkoski C.M., Co-Artistic Director, Opera Atelier. “Opera Atelier realizes just how vulnerable people are when separated from the artists they love, just when they need them the most. And while nothing can replicate the vigour of a live performance, our hope is to provide a virtual concert experience that connects and moves our beloved community situated around the world.”
