Opera Carolina / Actor's Theatre

Part 1 Opera Carolina Performs Aleko and Pagliacci
It’s an Opera Carolina double-header:  two operas hit the stage this week in Charlotte-- back to back with similar themes, but by different composers.  We hear about Aleko and Pagliacci and from the lead in Pagliacci who sings the world over but is making his Carolina debut.  Ironically, he lives in Rock Hill. We’ll discuss that and much more.

Guests
Maestro James Meena
- Opera Carolina's general director and principal conductor

Jeff Gwaltney - Rock Hill resident, plays Canio in Pagliacci

Michael Capasso - general director of the new NY City Opear and director of Pagliacci/Aleko

Part 2 Actor's Theatre's Big Move
Actor’s Theatre is on the move.  Their long-time home is becoming an apartment.  What this means for Charlotte’s only professional theatre company.

Guests

- artistic director at Actors Theatre Charlotte
