Maryland Opera Studio: New Work Reading of Town Hall

Saturday, September 16, 2017 . 6 PM

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Gildenhorn Recital Hall

In a small town, somewhere in America, a community gathers to ask their Senator questions about the politics of the day. But the conversation turns into a heated debate with mortal stakes when a retired librarian takes the event hostage, and forces a young intern to live-stream the proceedings on social media. Theo Popov (composer) and E.M. Lewis (librettist) are recipients of the Second Annual Opera Composition Commission, a partnership between the Maryland Opera Studio and the Artist Partner Program of The Clarice that supports the creation of new opera work. This performance is a preview of the completed work, which will premiere in February 2018.

Tickets: Free, no tickets required.
