Subject: The Arts Take Center Stage in Greater Wilmington
Wilmington, Del (January 13, 2015)...As the weather warms, the arts take center stage in Greater Wilmington, DE. Some are established favorites; others are new undertakings.
OperaDelaware Festival (May 14-22) The OperaDelaware Festival makes its debut on two consecutive weekends in May. The festival features two main stage opera productions at the Grand Opera House in the heart of Downtown Wilmington. OperaDelaware presents the fully staged East Coast premiere of Franco Faccio's lost opera, Amleto (Hamlet), which was discovered in Italy after 145 years and painstakingly reconstructed by Maestro Anthony Barresse. OperaDelaware also performs Verdi's timeless Falstaff based on Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor and Henry IV. In recognition of this prodigious undertaking, OperaDelaware has been awarded a $15,000 grant by the National Endowment for the Arts. www.operade.org
