Aria Opera Group Presents I Hear America Singing

May 10 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Three middle-aged Juilliard grads rehearse numbers from the revival of a musical revue called I Hear America Singing prior to a backers’ audition. Is it a dream, a mid-life crisis, a reunion, or an intervention? Love, the unreliability of memory, and personal reinvention intertwine as they swap old and new songs — from pop song to art song, Victorian parlor tune to operatic aria, agitprop to jingle — compulsively recontextualized by Robbie, a becalmed middle aged commercial composer striving to regain his self-confidence and sense of identity by obsessively revising the show that launched his career on Broadway twenty years earlier.

Featuring performances by Robert Frankenberry, Desiree Soteres, and Christopher Scott. Book/Music/Lyrics/Direction by Daron Hagen, Music Direction by Robert Frankenberry.

Tickets are $35!

Thursday, May 9 at 8 p.m.
