Opera Memphis’ seventh annual MIDTOWN OPERA FESTIVAL is coming to Playhouse on the Square April 6-14, 2019. The Festival is anchored by the premiere performances of The Falling and the Rising, a new American opera composed by Zach Redler and written by Jerre Dye. This opera will be preceded by an Opera Prelude Talk, providing insight into the story, characters, and music we'll experience.
