Mississippi Pizza 5-7PM All ages A concert version of a new Gypsy Jazz Opera! What happens when a diner cook who can only make tortillas (the most delicious in the world) encounters a mafioso customer who only wants his corned beef-hash? And what about the waitress with a mouth like a sailor and her money-grubbing boss? Come and see as Hungry Opera Machine (Eric Stern of Vagabond Opera's newest endeavor) presents FLOUR, SALT AND MOONBEAMS at Mississippi Pizza November 23rd in a very special concert version of this new opera with vocalists Catherine Olson, Scot Crandal, Annie Rosen and Noah Mickens. Instrumentalists Paul Evans on saxophone and percussion, Mirabai Peart on violin and Eric Stern on piano. The style of the opera is a hybrid of modern classical and gypsy jazz (the form of music popularized by Django Reinhardt) and the ensemble members will even take solos. Not what you think of when you think of opera is it? One thing it definitely is--An opening PARTY so there will be a jazz trio the second hour, led by Eric Stern, and prizes worthy of a Roman God. The opera composed by Eric Stern, is directed by Annie Rosen. Hungry Opera Machine was founded by Vagabond Opera leader Eric Stern with the mission "to produce contemporary opera and theater in English casting primarily from the talent pool of the Portland Oregon community and the Northwest. To extend the operatic tradition by choosing operas that not only conform to the classical standard but also ones that may include other forms of music such as jazz and music from everywhere." In early 2014 Stern partnered with Dell'Arte School of physical theater graduate Annie Rosen in the endeavor. The partnership has been a crackling success. Already they've worked in collaboration with some of Portland's premier artistic organizations including Artspark, Portland Story Theater, Night Flight Aerial and more. Opera and Commedia Dell'Arte. Together again after all these years! More info: www.hungryoperamachine.wordpress.com/ www.ericsternevents.com All Ages $10 advance/$15 at the door http://www.facebook.com/events/583786011748832/
