Lesser-known works of American opera get their day on OSU stage
First of all, yes, there's American opera. Second of all, no, you might not have heard it. And third of all, that doesn't mean it's not of quality. Plus, the selected works in this Ohio State University Opera & Lyric Theatre concert speak to issues that still confront society today, including mental illness, sexual orientation, grief and substance abuse. Acts from Previn's “A Streetcar Named Desire,” Argento's “Miss Havisham's Wedding Night” and Bernstein's “A Quiet Place” are on the program.
