American Opera Idol – From the Porch

July 21, 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM


Join us for an interactive Opera performance!

On July 21, finalists chosen by the Opera Connecticut Artistic Directors will perform at Hill-Stead for the chance to win the title of American Opera Idol.

At Hill-Stead the finalists will sing one piece each. Then, a panel of professional judges from various areas of the classical music arena will select 4-5 “Super Finalists.”

The “Super Finalists” will sing a second piece. And finally, the audience will vote to select the “American Opera Idol.”
