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.

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.
