The Great Arts Cabaret
A musical revue featuring opera, Broadway, &
songbook—in an Adirondack great-camp setting!

Conceived as an entertainment in a great-camp setting, the first half of the “cabaret” takes place around the turn of the 20th century and consisting of opera, operetta, and art song, with the second half taking place in the 1930s-50s and consisting of Broadway tunes and American songbook.

The cast consists of soprano Annachristi Cordes, mezzo-soprano Beth MacLeod Largent, mezzo-soprano Kasey Stewart, tenor Neal Harrelson, and bass-baritone George Cordes, with Elizabeth Cordes at the piano. All of these performers have dazzled audiences around the North Country with the Arts Center, High Peaks Opera, and other organizations. Several have also performed around the country and around the world.

The same group joined together remotely in 2020 to present the virtual concert The Show Must Go On! as part of the Arts Center’s ALCA-Seltzer Series and are thrilled to be combining their talents in person for this show. The program will include favorites by Puccini, Bizet, Verdi, Gilbert & Sullivan, Victor Herbert, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Rodgers & Hart, Lerner & Loewe, and other great composers and songwriters.

Refreshments, including beer and wine, will be available for the Arts Center show. Concessions will also be sold at the Indian Lake Theater performance.
