Revolution and Revolutionary!
The American Revolution is the backdrop of the world premiere of The King’s Man as the relationship between Benjamin Franklin and his son, William Franklin, is challenged as the men take different sides in defining the direction of the country. “Revolutionary” describes The Rite of Spring and its aftermath as the creators deal with the fallout from the opening night riots in Danse Russe. These two, new one-acts are the works of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Paul Moravec and librettist Terry Teachout.
The newly developed Contemporary Opera Series focuses on new works in various stages of completion to allow American contemporary composers the opportunity to fully realize their operatic vision for their work in fully staged, semi-staged or workshop-styled productions.
Performances are Friday, October 11, 2013, at 8 p.m. atComstock Hall on the University of Louisville Campus and Saturday, October 12, 2013, at 2 p.m., also at Comstock Hall.
Single tickets are $30/$25 for Kentucky Opera subscribers and $10 for students.
