Opera on PortSide Tanker in Container Port

Monday, September 10, 2007
As part of PortSide NewYork’s efforts to raise awareness of, and appreciation for, the waterfront and working waterfront in the Port of New York, Puccini’s opera Il Tabarro set on the tanker home of the Mary Whalen, in a working container port will be performed by Vertical Player Repertory and hosted by American Stevedoring, the operators of the Red Hook container port in Brooklyn. The tanker is the stage; the audience sits on the pier.

Actual stevedores and professional opera singers will share the stage, in a story about barge life, adultery and murder, surrounded by views of gantry cranes, containers, the lumber port, passing vessel traffic and a spectacular view of Governor's Island and the lower Manhattan skyline, making an unforgettable on-site experience.

Performances are scheduled for Friday, September 14 and Sunday, September 16. Opera is one hour long without intermission. Opera ticket is $25. Opera + Sunset Reception before each performance $60. (Proceeds benefit PortSide) Reception 5:00-6:45pm Opera 7:00-8:00pm
