Jazz opera about baseball debuts in Cooperstown
(Published: May 18, 2007)

"Cooperstown," a jazz opera set in current-day baseball about an up-and-coming pitcher struggling with fame, fortune and love, will make its world premiere at 8 p.m. Saturday in the Baseball Hall of Fame's Grandstand Theater in Cooperstown.

Cooperstown resident Sasha Matson composed the score and co-wrote the libretto with Mark Miller. Charles Schneider, founding music director of Glimmerglass Opera in Cooperstown, will serve as music director and conductor.

Using an on-stage jazz quintet and a cast of five principal vocalists, including Tri-Cities opera resident artists James Barbato and Matthew Edwards, "Cooperstown" explores, with the tools of opera, musical theater and jazz, professional baseball's inherent dramatic range and power, "Cooperstown" will be performed for one night only; tickets are $10 and must be reserved by calling 547-0397.
