Windham Orchestra performs mash up of two great operas


The Windham Orchestra will collaborate with the New England Center for Circus Arts (NECCA), a world-class cast of singers, and a locally sourced chorus in a double bill of the most famous, telling and powerful elements of two great verismo operas.

According to Windham Orchestra Musical Director Hugh Keelan, "Our mash up combines the most famous, telling and powerful elements of the great verismo operas Cavalleria Rusticana by Mascagni and Pagliacci by Leoncavallo, reconstituted by a local non-Italian composer operating under the nom de plume Leo Maski."

Performances are set to take place on Sunday, June 5 and Sunday, June 12, at 2 p.m. at the Latchis Theater, 50 Main Street, Brattleboro.
