Meadows Opera Theatre’s Opera Free For All: When the Night Wind Howls

When: 
Friday, November 3, 2017 - 1:00pm

Do you believe in ghosts? Have you ever felt the presence of a deceased loved one? Do these spirits really exist in the physical world, or are they simply manifestations of our human fear, guilt, shame and loneliness that play tricks on our mind? In the hands of brilliant opera and musical theatre composers Monteverdi, Purcell, Tchaikovsky, Sullivan, Britten, Corigliano and Simon, these phantoms do indeed live and continue to haunt us, both on the stage and long after we leave the theatre.
