FREDONIA – The Fredonia Opera House will host its first live performance since the COVID-19 shutdown later this month.
The Fredonia Opera House Performing Arts Center Executive Director Rick Davis says the live performance concert from the Opera House stage will be streamed online on Sunday, March 21, at 7:30 p.m.
Davis says the show, Opening Up/Back to Broadway, features selections from musical theatre classics as well as contemporary blockbusters, including Evita, Hamilton, Rent, Waitress, Moulin Rouge, Come From Away, and Frozen.
“We’re so excited to be hosting a performance on our stage once again, even if it is to an empty theatre,” said Davis in a statement. “We are so grateful to the artists who are participating in this show. Thanks to a generous grant from the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation, we were able to purchase the equipment and technology to enable us to live stream this event, as its happening, to viewers at home.”
The show is the brainchild of Opera House Board Member Jennifer Davis. The concert is a live-streamed event, which will only be presented live as it is happening.
Tickets are $16 per household and can be purchased online at www.fredopera.org. A link to view the performance will be emailed to ticket-buyers a few hours prior to the show’s curtain.
Opened in 1891, the Fredonia Opera House is a member-supported not-for-profit organization located in Village Hall in downtown Fredonia.
