Jazz Goes to the Opera is an all-new joint concert/community happening presented by the New Mexico Jazz Workshop and Opera Southwest.

The concert will feature noted crossover jazz/opera singer Alicia Hall Moran, who the New York Times called "a mezzo-soprano whose classical training and Broadway credentials only begin to map her aesthetic breadth."

Ms. Hall Moran will work with jazz arranger Shelly Berg (whose arranging credits run from Renee Fleming to Gloria Estefan) and saxophonist Doug Lawence and his band to develop a program that explores the connections and musical interplay between the diverse worlds of opera and jazz. While this includes arranging and putting a jazz “spin” on opera favorites, the concert will explore the dialectic of opera and jazz at a deeper level than simply “funkifying Verdi.”
