Knoxville Opera has taken on the challenge of producing a thrilling and seldom-performed opera: Arrigo  Boito's Mefistofele.  Combining the forces of a 100+ member choir, multiple brass choirs, 50+ member orchestra, and internationally-renowned opera singers, this epic production is sure to be one that shouldn't be missed. Starring the Metropolitan Opera's Donovan Singletary as the devil and Russian soprano, Julia Lima as the beautiful Margherita, Mefistofele tells the classic tale of good vs. evil.
