NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- New Rochelle Opera kicks off its 2017 season with a tribute to Marta Eggerth on Sunday, March 12, 2017. The fundraiser will be held at The Fountainhead, located at 55 Quaker Ridge Road, New Rochelle, NY. All proceeds will support the Company’s June production of Franz Lehar’s The Merry Widow.

The event will celebrate the life and careers of Marta Eggerth and her husband, Jan Kiepura. Together, the couple appeared in over 2,000 performances of The Merry Widow—Eggerth portraying Hanna, the wealthy widow, and Kiepura singing the role of her suitor, Count Danilo. The presentation will consist of discussion, video clips and photos as told by Marjan Kiepura and Jane Knox, son and daughter-in-law of Eggerth and Kiepura. Additionally, a short concert of selections from the operetta will feature cast members from the Company’s upcoming production.

The program will begin at 3:00 pm. All tickets are $40, and include a coffee and dessert reception following the presentation. To purchase advance tickets, visit www.nropera.org, or send a check payable to New Rochelle Opera, Inc., to P.O. Box 55, New Rochelle, New York 10804. All tickets will be held at the door.
