Marble City Opera opens up its 2016-2017 season with two comedic one-act operas, performed tonight and tomorrow night (October 13th and 14th) at The Emporium in downtown Knoxville. Gallantry by Douglas Moore is a soap-opera opera, complete with commercial breaks selling the wonders of Lochinvar soap. La Divina by Thomas Pasatieri is a hilarious tale about an opera diva who's slowly realizing that she may be past her vocal prime.
In this interview, Morning Concert host, Melony Dodson, chats with general and artistic director, Kathryn Frady, and soprano, Jacquie Brecheen.
Performances begin at 8pm. More information is available online at www.marblecityopera.com
