National Poetry Month!


Opera & Poetry Highlighted at Stratford Library
Sunday, April 21st, 2 P.M.

Lovell Room, Stratford Library
Free and open to the public

The Stratford Library will host a special opera and poetry event on Sunday, April 21st in conjunction with “National Poetry Month”, featuring Italian poet and opera singer Stefano Russo.

Stefano Russo is an Italian American artist born in Rome, Italy, who moved to the United States in 2011. His artistic history began with opera singing and led to a passion for writing, especially poetry. He published his first collection of poems, “Life, a Labyrinth of Thoughts,” in 2017, and another collection entitled “Beyond the Chains of the Mind,” in 2017. In 2024 he wrote a memoir, “Prisoner”, and currently is working on another collection of poems. 

The passion that drives him to write and sing is a passion that Russo has always cultivated to make his nature shine and to give life to his identity. At the Library program, Russo will perform various opera selections, accompanied by acclaimed pianist Eric Trudell, and discuss and read from his latest collection of poems.

Autographed copies of Russo’s book will be available for purchase after the performance.
