Operesque
Allie Jessing (Stage name: Allie Mazon)
Mannes College The New School for Music, Vocal Performance (Graduate)

Operesque is a performance project that combines Opera and Burlesque to rekindle the love for high art culture in a new generation, reinvigorate the relevance and sex appeal of classical music, and provide a new platform for education and awareness of safer sex practices, self love, and mutual respect in the digital age of dating apps and beyond.

The first stage, funded by the Alsop Entrepreneurship Award, is a free series of sophisticated, sensual, classical performances by Allie Mazon, Master’s candidate in Voice at Mannes Conservatory, involving burlesque strip-tease, and performed at a bar to embrace an accidental audience.

By establishing her persona and art form through videos, photos, performances, and social media, Allie will expand the project through collaboration with multi-disciplinary artists such as instrumentalists, electronic musicians, dancers, visual artists, acrobats, and writers, to create innovative, multi-media Operatic Burlesque experiences that titillate, enrich, and inform.

This movement will develop influence in the realm of sex education by creating awareness and collaboration with artists, technologists, and health workers to provide innovative solutions for spreading sexual health knowledge, taking advantage of the digital dating age and the moving power of the arts.

    Love this project! The best burlesque is set to classical music. Good luck! (& don’t forget the Dance of the Seven Veils — an obvious operatic choice!)
