Posted by Julie in News, Piedmont Opera

The opera powerhouse couple, Jill and Jake Gardner, who live in Kernersville, have performed the opera together all over the country. They will reprise their starring roles in an upcoming performance of TOSCA with Winston-Salem’s Piedmont Opera. “…Jill and Jake Gardner have graced the stages of opera houses throughout the world, including previous performances of “Tosca.” In a fortunate twist of fate, the husband and wife reside in Kernersville, just a stone’s throw from where they will reprise their roles as Tosca and Scarpia. “The Piedmont Opera is my home,” says Jill, adding that the first opera she ever saw was “Carmen” at Reynolds Auditorium. “Working here is the greatest delight, because we…

Team Gardner in “Happy Birthday Wanda June”

Posted by Julie in Indianapolis Opera, News

Team Gardner, perform in Indianapolis Opera’s premiere of HAPPY BIRTHDAY WANDA JUNE: “The cast knew what they had to do, and seemed fully invested in the show both dramatically and vocally. Jake Gardner maintained stunning bravado with the right hints of vulnerability as Harold Ryan.” “A crucial aspect of the action comes from the world beyond, a heaven that clearly was also beyond Vonnegut’s capacity for belief. It’s a paradise of bland pleasures flecked with the occasional harmless disaster, such as the tornado that the third Mrs. Ryan (given a fine tipsy lilt by Jill Gardner) tells us about.” Read the full review at Jay Harvey Upstage…

Indy Opera Presents Happy Birthday Wanda June!

Posted by Julie in Indianapolis Opera, News

Happy Birthday Wanda June began life as a play by Kurt Vonnegut in October 1971 at New York’s Theater de Lys. The play was Vonnegut’s first attempt at a stage work. Written to protest the Vietnam War in 1970, the play blends the sacred and the profane to produce off-the-wall and strangely funny satires. Wanda’s plot is based loosely on the Greek legends of Odysseus and Penelope—it involves the unexpected return of a mercenary career solider/hunter named Harold Ryan and his wife, Penelope. When Harold left Penelope, she was a ditzy carhop; when he returns after eight years lost in the Amazon, he finds that she has gone to college, majored in…

Eugene Opera Gives Jaw-Dropping Performance of ‘Eugene Onegin’

Posted by Julie in Eugene Opera, News, Review

“Eugene Opera… met and surpassed all of this reviewer’s expectations at the premiere on Friday night. Rather than merely managing this opera, each and every performer presented a jaw-dropping, tear-jerking, stellar production worthy of the best opera houses in the country, let alone the Hult Center… …The true love story of the night, however, was between Jill and Jake Gardner, husband and wife in real life and in the opera. Jake Gardner’s return to Eugene Opera struck a different tone from the sinister and dark characters of last season. His rich and emotive voice as Prince Gremin proved hypnotic and endearing, lending an immediacy to the character that often is overshadowed by…
