El Paso Opera premieres “A Grand Night for Singing!” in Las Cruces

Leora Zeitlin

Drawing on talent from throughout the region and beyond, the El Paso Opera will showcase seven singers from their Young Artists Program in the premiere of “A Grand Night for Singing!,” an evening of great American songs followed by champagne and dessert. Opera director Judy Weinstein came from New York to bring to life what they’ve billed as a “staged evening of sophisticated elegance.” Weinstein, El Paso Opera’s General and Artistic Director David Grabarkewitz and baritone James Wright, who will perform in the event, all came to the KRWG studios to talk with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin about the premiere, the Opera’s upcoming production of Tosca, and to sing an excerpt from one of the featured songs. The premiere is on March 1 at 7 p.m. at the Rio Grande Theater.
