The Glade on Little Island

On Site Opera is proud to offer two unique opera experiences at the festival:

THE PERFECT PIG
August 14th & 15th at 11:00 am, 11:35 am, & 12:10 pm
Opera meets play in the New York premiere of Philip Wharton and Janet Burroway’s The Perfect Pig, a whimsical show featuring both a singer and a large-scale puppet as the title character. This charming family opera and endearing tale of discovering one’s own beauty unfolds in the intimate surroundings of The Glade at Little Island.

TAPESTRY OF NEW YORK
August 14th and 15th at 1:15 pm & 2:00 pm
Tapestry of New York is a short concert highlighting the varied and diverse voices of our beloved city by some of NYC’s most exciting emerging artists. They include the world premiere of Joy’s Aria from H. Lawrence Freeman’s jazz opera American Romance (World Premiere); a selection from the transgender story As One; Jessie Montgomery’s mezzo-and-cello tribute to the poet Bimbo Rivas, a Puerto Rican native whose community activism helped transform the Lower East Side; and Leonard Bernstein’s toe-tapping New York, New York.

Place a timed entry reservation with Little Island to attend!
If you arrive before 12pm, no reservation is needed.

Pigs, Puppets, and Performances

On Site Opera’s puppet-based performance of The Perfect Pig on Little Island is not the first puppet-based opera in New York City. It’s also not the city’s first pig-based opera. It’s not even the first opera performance on a little artificial island in the Hudson River just off Manhattan.
