It’s a ‘brava’ new world for opera startup

The team at Bare Opera includes Min Lew, general director, Larisa Martinez, soprano (and part of the production), Laetitia Ruccolo, artistic director, and Rio Vander Stahl, press director. 

 

Making opera hip and fun for a developing audience not necessarily up for a Lincoln Center experience is a challenge that Min Lew has readily accepted. Lew is marshalling all of her creative and business skills as part of a team to get the curtain up on Bare Opera, an alternative company in New York City with the tagline “simply modern opera.”

A musician as well as an arts administrator, Lew is the general director of Bare Opera, whose first performances of Maurice Ravel’s “L’enfant et les Sortilèges” and Claude Debussy’s “L’enfant prodigue,” will take place May 2, 3 and 4 at the Robert Miller Gallery in Chelsea.

“I’m so excited about starting a new opera company,” she told the Inquirer.

Lew was born in the United States, but left at the age of 1 for postings around the globe with her Korean diplomatic family. She came to Scarsdale at the end of her sophomore year at age 16 and graduated in 2005. While her parents continued their service, Lew attended Wellesley College, graduating in 2009 with a major in art history and a minor in music. She went on to the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Mass., where she earned a master’s degree in piano performance.  Read more >

Bowling for Scarsdale

Here’s a date to mark on your calendar, if you haven’t already: Wednesday, April 22. That’s when Scarsdalians young and old will gather at The Fountainhead in New Rochelle to honor Peter Strauss, a former mayor and volunteer extraordinaire, with the village’s highest award for volunteer service, the Scarsdale Bowl.

In his myriad volunteer positions, Strauss has never been content to do the minimum required. He lives the belief that government is a partnership. High taxes do not excuse citizens from responsibilities like working constructively with public employees, looking out for their neighbors, fostering the health of the community and the environment.

As a trustee and mayor, Strauss is remembered for getting big things off the ground — like the condos on Christie Place and the new Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps headquarters, projects that had been mired in controversy and inaction for years — and little things, like heeding the pleas of a crossing guard to get a traffic light installed by Heathcote School.
