Opera Performance, Pre-Show Talk, and Reception
La Double Coquette

Saturday, June 4, 2016

Performance at 8pm | Pre-Show Talk at 6:30pm

Peak Performances @ Montclair State University

Join FIAF Montclair and Peak Performances for a special preshow talk and performance of the acclaimed French opera La Double Coquette.

A charming revision of Antoine Dauvergne’s 1753 opéra comique, La Double Coquette tells the story of what happens when a good-looking, double-crossing cross-dresser sets out to win back her lover from the arms of a young seductress. Modern-day French composer Gérard Pesson’s additions seamlessly complement the original score. Combined with Pierre Alferi’s cheeky new libretto, La Double Coquette is delicious light comedy brought to life by the gifted musicians of Ensemble Amarillis.

Neal Goren, Founder and Artistic Director of Gotham Chamber Opera, will host the pre-show talk “Strange Bedfellows”, followed by the premiere of La Double Coquette. After the show, meet the artists backstage during a VIP champagne reception. Delicious hors-d'oeuvres will be served during the talk and the reception.
