Forte is back and better than ever. Join up this season, and get to know a community of art-loving, experience-seeking Nashvillians. Kickstart your experience by attending their upcoming Hercules vs Vampires performance on January 27.
Take a 60s cult movie, set it to a new operatic score, add live singers and orchestra, and you get a fantastic night of over-the-top fun. Hercules vs Vampires, a new opera by Patrick Morganelli, was written to accompany Mario Bava's 1961 cult movie of the same name, a sword-and-sandal film that is wildly operatic in scope. Follow Hercules on his quest to rescue Dianara from eternal enslavement by an evil vampire-master. We'll project the film in its entirety as the new operatic soundtrack is performed live by opera singers and orchestra. (Sung in English with projected English supertitles!)
Join Forte and Nashville Opera on January 27 for this one-night only event. Show starts at 8 p.m. in TPAC's Jackson Hall, but come early to enjoy a photo booth, costume contest, and an insights talk with Hercules composer Patrick Morganelli and Nashville Opera CEO & Artistic Director John Hoomes. And if you still need convincing, tickets are just $26 and $45! Follow this link to grab yours: https://patron.tpac.org/promo/NASHVILLECHAMBER
