NY opera tragedy: Designer killed, opera director injured

Jeremiah and Keturah Grünblatt, a popular couple in the opera community, got married on Sunday and went on honeymoon to Long Island.

Yesterday, while out driving, their SUV swerved into oncoming traffic and hit a bus.

Jeremiah, 42, was killed. Keturah, 39, was rushed to hospital. Her injuries are said to be not life-threatening.

The opera profession is in shock. Keturah is a former director at Emerald City Opera. She spent the month before her wedding in Kentucky, directing Verdi’s Macbeth.

  • What a tragedy. I did not have a chance to meet Jeremiah but having worked with Keturah at Virginia Opera, I believe he must have been a beautiful soul who chose to join in marriage with another beautiful soul. Love, let it lead you too! May their love and commitment transcend this experience.
