October 16, 2023: Syracuse Opera “I Am A Dreamer”

  Syracuse Opera & Tri-Cities Opera are presenting a season of works that reach beyond the stage and touch the hearts of a wide audience.  The season opens with “I Am A Dreamer Who No Longer Dreams,” the stories of two women – immigrants – who find commonalities in their vastly different journeys.  Host Diane Jones welcomed lead actors Heejung Lee (“Singa”) and Carla Lopez-Speziale (“Rosa”) to the studio, along with Artistic Director Christian Capocaccia and General Director John Rozzoni, to talk about this work and the role of opera in history and today.   More about the opera and the entire season is available at the Syracuse Opera website.   Watch the Community FM page on WCNY as well – starting Wednesday, 10/18, a previously-recorded panel discussion with the conductor, director, and expert panelists will be available for listening on demand and over the air.
