While the honor of being Knoxville’s producer of chamber opera went uncontested to Marble City Opera, they’ve made themselves at home in the position and in the city’s music scene over the last year. This weekend finds them at the Emporium on Gay Street in a production called “Ties That Bond,” a collection of three short operas: Introductions and Goodbyes (Lukas Foss), Will You Marry Me? (Hugo Weisgall), and A Hand of Bridge (Samuel Barber).
In this week’s Metro Pulse, I preview the production, which you can read here.
Thanks for reading.
