Audiences will be moved and entertained as we shine a light on the myriad of nuanced responses to the adversity that are part of the human condition. Kurt Weills 1948 Folk Opera and Gian Carlo Menottis 1939 Radio Opera are presented together for an evening of triumph and tragedy, but who is triumphant and who is tragic? That is the evenings question, and our answers will be determined by our world view. We humans are complex beings, and the characters in these two very different stories run the gamut from hopeless romantic to cynical opportunist.
