Willamette University Opera: Town Hall
March 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5 – $10
Willamette University’s Dramatic Vocal Arts program is thrilled to produce the west coast premiere of the new chamber opera Town Hall by composer Theo Popov, and librettist – and distinguished Willamette alumna – E.M. Lewis. A bit of background and synopsis of the work, provided by E.M. Lewis and Theo Popov: 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.Each evening’s performance will also include a student showcase immediately following the 50-minute opera, which will feature the talented students of the music department alongside collaborative pianist, Brenda Winberg. The opera will be staged in Smith Auditorium on the Willamette University campus from March 7th-10th.
