About the Production

On Site Opera, which has garnered acclaim for immersive, site-specific productions, will perform Rameau’s one-act Pygmalion in two unusual—and unusually apt—venues this summer, just before the 250th anniversary of the composer’s death: Madame Tussauds New York, on June 17, and Lifestyle-Trimco Showroom, on June 20 & 21.

Rameau’s 1748 acte de ballet is widely considered one of his greatest one-acts. In Ballot de Sovot’s libretto, based on Ovid, the sculptor Pygmalion creates a statue to which he professes his love, and which he asks Venus to bring to life. L’Amour (Cupid) arrives to praise Pygmalion’s artistry and faith in love, and animates the statue. The new production will dig deeper into the themes and lessons inherent in the myth.

The run of Pygmalion will begin with a gala performance Tuesday, June 17, 7:30pm at Madame Tussauds New York (234 W 42nd St., New York, NY 10036). Tickets are $100.00, and include full admission to the wax attraction before the opera and a post-performance wine reception with the cast.

Performances will take place Friday, June 20, and Saturday, June 21 at 7:30pm at Lifestyle-Trimco Mannequin Showroom (152 West 25th St., New York, NY 10001). Tickets are $35.

Performances will run approximately 50 minutes.
