Time of Trouble Workshop Premiere

I'm in Halifax this week work shopping the new opera about the set-to between the Sisters of Charity and the Archbishop in the 1800's.. We had a dress rehearsal last night - the cast is terrific and Elizabeth Raum's music is great. The libretto hangs together so it is all good. I can't wait to see it in front of an audience now - tomorrow in Lunenburg and Saturday in Halifax.

As of today, Jan. 22, 2015, there are only three performances left and tickets are going fast. Sorry, for the late posting.  We are among a stellar cast - including our old friend, Michele George.
