Songs from American Opera
Join us 7 pm Thursday, November 16 for a presentation done by Converse College on American Opera.
Both a lecture and a concert, this 45 minute presentation journeys through the origins of opera here in America. Converse Opera Theatre director Jenna Tamisiea, and Converse's talented opera singers will explore great American composers like Gershwin, Bernstein, Barber and Floyd. This event also features a sneak peak of Lee Hoiby's southern opera, Summer and Smoke, based on the Tennessee Williams play.
