The one-act opera will be performed between a program of traditional celebratory klezmer music by Hal Aqua and the Lost Tribe and a presentation of From Darkness to Light, a brand-new work by Ballet Nouveau Colorado. The idea for the multi-dimensional, three-part production was born of a conversation between Raynor and Colorado Public Radio’s Monika Vischer and a desire to present the voices of the Holocaust in various states of being.
The resulting Journey is a massive historical and artistic collaboration of Ballet Nouveau Colorado, the Central City Opera, the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, the Mizel Arts and Culture Center, the Jewish Community Center and Newman Center Presents. It runs tonight and tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts, 2344 East Iliff Avenue. Tickets are $26 to $78; for more information, call 303-871-7715 or visit www.newmancenterpresents.com.
Wed., Jan. 16, 7:30 p.m.; Thu., Jan. 17, 7:30 p.m., 2013
