Offstage: Handel’s Rinaldo Reverence, Mysticism, and Tradition
November 2, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
MN Opera Offstage series at the socially missioned Metronome Brewery in Lowertown St. Paul is back! Join us for beer, music, and a conversation exploring Reverence, Mysticism and traditions of the western canon. This event also celebrates MNOPERA kicking off our first performance in the Luminary Arts Center.
Musical, artistic, and religious expression have been linked to our search for meaning and community since the beginning of time. In Handel’s Rinaldo, the text explores reverence, mysticism, and tradition in ways that seemingly promote conflict and division across religious and cultural lines. Producing Rinaldo presents an opportunity to explore how art, religious diversity, and creativity build common ground. Join us for a thought-provoking panel moderated by MNOPERA’s VP of Impact, Lee Bynum. Panelists include music historians and religious scholars from the United Theological Seminary and Rinaldo’s director Mo Zhou. Stick around after the conversation and enjoy another beer with some exclusive performances by members from the cast!
