Saturday Opera – American Opera

Welcome to an afternoon of American Opera. You will get to see the one act opera A Hand of Bridge by Samuel Barber, with a libretto written by the reknown opera composer Gian Carlo Menotti. This ten minute long opera is probably one of the shortest operas that are performed regularely. Our audience will also get to enjoy excerpts from Gershwins Porgy & Bess as well as works from other composers
