The Baltimore Concert Opera Presents THE CONSUL by Gian Carlo Menotti – 11/22 and 11/24

0

Baltimore Concert Opera continues its season of tragic heroines with The Consul. An unfortunately timeless piece, The Consul touches on issues of fascism, political resistance, and immigration bureaucracy that are every bit as relevant today as when the Pulitzer Prize winning work premiered in 1950. Soprano Melanie Henley Heyn makes her company debut as Magda Sorel, joined by Ron Loyd as John Sorel. Performances are at the historic Engineers Club at the Garrett-Jacobs Mansion on November 22nd and 24th. Tickets: $29.50 – 73.50 and can be purchased here.
