Each year at this time the Opera Theatre of Weston brings together old friends, up-and-coming professionals and current and former students for an early winter performance. The goal of founders Nan Nall and Lise Messier’s is to create a love of opera in Vermont.
After years of putting on operas for and with school children, the Opera Theatre of Weston is now offering a special adult production. It’s a lush performance of the comic operetta Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss Jr.
VPR’s Susan Keese recently spent some time at a rehearsal and spoke with Messier about the production.
