CU New Opera Workshop (2019)

Composer and librettist Tom Cipullo, whose acclaimed "Glory Denied" is one of the most frequently produced 21st-century American operas, comes to CU NOW to workshop the comedy "Hobson's Choice." Based loosely on the classic 1915 play by Harold Brighouse, the opera follows Maggie Hobson as she insists on living her own life, despite the social conventions of the era—even if this means defying her autocratic, hard-drinking father, marrying a talented yet shy and illiterate bootmaker, and opening up her own business.

Performance dates and times: 

Friday, June 14, 7:30 p.m.

Sunday, June 16, 2 p.m.

“Opera has this tremendous tradition of being not only great art, but a great source of entertainment. When you hear these voices put to the service of a comic story, it can be really thrilling.”
