Celebrate opera, your community, and a new year by contributing today! We are currently rehearsing LOLA's first commission, Lardo Weeping. About Lardo Weeping: LOLA has commissioned Austin's own Peter Stopschinski to create a new chamber opera score based on a one-woman play by Terry Galloway called Lardo Weeping. This comedic and endearing new work focuses on Dinah, a woman with a challenging and often times humorous personality that colors her relationship with the world. Lardo Weeping features mezzo soprano, Liz Cass, an instrumental chamber ensemble, a chorus of singers, and technical elements all woven together to illuminate how we explore what it means to be human. The first workshop performances of this piece will be held March 7-16, 2019 at the Ground Floor Theatre. We hope you will consider joining us in making great art by making a donation today. We all sing better together!
This is opera by real people for real people and you are the people that help us sparkle and shine. LOLA is committed to cultivating the future of opera by offering new approaches to experiencing this particular musical genre and type of singing. Our focus is on integrity in our approach to this art form, to the Austin community, and to each other.
