FWOpera is going bigger and bolder in 2017! In keeping with the forward-thinking mission of the company, our wildly popular event Opera Overture is evolving this season. Say hello to Opera Unfiltered! The name has changed, but the cutting-edge spirit remains the same and this time it is FREE to the public.
To celebrate the New Year, FWOpera is heading to Wild Acre Brewing Company to give you an exclusive sneak peek of our 2014 Frontiers showcase winner Voir Dire. Written by composer Matthew Peterson and librettist Jason Zencka, the explosive new work receives its world premiere during the 2017 Festival and features firsthand accounts of the brutal world of legal drama.
The creative team will join us to discuss the process of developing the piece from page to the stage and the cast will perform selections from this gut-wrenching true-crime opera.
