The Tinker of Tivoli

  • Westminster Choir College Robert L. Annis Playhouse, 101 Walnut Ln. Princeton, NJ 08540 (map)

Westminster Conservatory's 2019 benefit concert takes a theatrical turn, with a semi-staged production of the youth opera The Tinker of Tivoli, a delightfully comic tale about the dangers of pride and arrogance and the great rewards of love. This opera, written and directed by Conservatory faculty members Michael Jacobsen and Danielle Sinclair, features an energetic musical score drawn from the operas of Gioacchino Rossini and is loosely based on the Brothers Grimm tale The Gallant Tailor. The opera is set in the style of a Rossini comic opera and is sung throughout. This benefit concert brings together Conservatory faculty and student performers.
