STONE SOUP: An Opera for Families!
September 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
STONE SOUP pairs composer Joe Illick and librettist Mark Campbell for an operatic retelling of the classic European folk tale. Their reimagining will transport audiences to Blessing, Texas for a rocking-chair view of the comings and goings at Max’s General store. From the opera’s opening notes representing a young girl’s stomach rumblings, through the whimsically collaborative creation of the title meal, to its uplifting ending, Stone Soup imparts a timeless message: we all have something to contribute and sharing makes things better for everyone.
STONE SOUP is generously funded by The Community Foundation or Elmira-Corning and the Finger Lakes, The Floyd Hooker Foundation, The Roger Kresge Foundation, NYSEG, Coughlin & Gerhart, LLP, Sam’s Club Vestal, and The Victor & Esther Rozen Foundation. STONE SOUP was commissioned by Fort Worth Opera and is presented by arrangement with The Barbara Hogenson Agency, Inc.
