Maryland Opera Studio presents TWA at Clarice Smith, Feb 17
Opera New Work Reading
Maryland Opera Studio
Friday, February 17, 2023 . 7:30PM
Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center.
This new opera inspired by the popular folk ballad THE TWA SISTERS, explores the eternal conflict between the opposing forces of love and jealousy; and why this ancient ballad resonates even more deeply today with the proliferation of social media and virtual sharing platforms.
With a tone reminiscent of Guillermo Del Toro’s popular cinematic fables, this opera sheds light on the joy, wonder, humor and pain in the relationship between sisters within a unique episodic structure which spans continents and centuries.
