Opera Connecticut returns to Hill-Stead! 

Join us for an interactive Opera performance! On July 17th 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.”

The evening will feature celebrity MC Mark Mitchell, who is a big classical music lover and supporter of Opera Connecticut.

The performance will take place on the West Lawn. Please bring chairs or blanket, and a picnic.
