By the time an opera production hits the stage, composers and performers have spent years transforming theatrical ideas and music. The interactive CU New Opera Workshop (CU NOW) feature the titans of America’s golden age of opera working with College of Music singers to perfect new works on their way to professional world premieres. You'll leave with exciting insights into the creative process when you experience opera from the ground up at CU NOW!

Performance date and time: 

June 12, 7:30 p.m.
June 14, 2 p.m.

Program: 

"Intellgence" is based on the true story of two highly successful spies during the Civil War: Mary Jane Bowser, a slave in the Confederate White House, and Elizabeth Van Lew, a secret abolitionist from a prominent Richmond family. Together, they create a network to steal critical intelligence from the Confederacy and smuggle it to the Union. They communicate through signals, symbols and codes, sometimes sewn into the fabric of dresses, using their “invisible” status as women to their advantage. But who is to be fully trusted when betrayal is pervasive—even among family? And what happens when the ghosts of ancestors emerge and immense questions of family and identity hover?
