Eugene Opera

Louisa May Alcott lit a fire that still burns when she wrote "Little Women" a century and a half ago.  Who knew people were still clamoring to read the book today?  

  Or that people love it enough to transform it into different art forms?  Case in point: Eugene Opera's presentation of "Little Women" as an opera, written in 1998 by Mark Adamo.  

Walk in the footsteps of tenor Michael Fabiano as he saves the day (with very little notice) at the MET's recent production of Lucia di Lammermoor. It's a little backstage peek of the opera world, bent nails and all.

Afghanistan, PTSD, and The Gulf Spill--in Opera

An opera premiering in Portland in September is meant to be more than just theater with music; it is also meant to heal. 

"The Canticle of the Black Madonna" is a modern story of a soldier struggling with PTSD from the Afghanistan war… in his native Louisiana during the oil spill. 

The opera is the creation of composer Ethan Gans-Morse and librettist Tiziana DellaRovere of the Rogue Valley.
