For 2023, Solo Opera presents, The Three Feathers, a magical chamber opera for families and children with music by award winning composer, Lori Laitman, and libretto by local poet laureate, Dana Gioia. Based on a fairytale by the Brothers Grimm, the opera follows Princess Dora, not as a damsel in distress, but as a heroine. A magic feather leads the shy, self-doubting princess to an enchanted Underworld ruled by a giant Frog King. Here, she summons her courage and compassion to face a series of mysterious and comic adventures that change her life. Completing her quest, she saves her father’s kingdom from the plots of her selfish sisters and earns her right to the crown. (September 8, 2023, 8:00pm and September 10, 2023, 2:00pm, Lesher Center for the Arts. Tickets go on sale February 1, 2023.)
For our The Three Feathers opera by Lori Laitman and Dana Gioia, Solo Opera is so excited to announce that we will be collaborating with the San Francisco Girls Chorus (Members of San Francisco Girls Chorus School- Valérie Sainte-Agathe, Artistic Director). The girls will be singing the roles of the Bats, Rats, and Frogs in the Underworld Kingdom run by the Frog King.
