Pretty Little Room Libretto Workshop


Saturday, April 13 | 4:00 PM


Upstairs Rehearsal Hall | Playhouse on the Square


You are invited to listen to the words of Jerre Dye's newest opera Pretty Little Room as they are read aloud by festival artists. Audience members will have opportunities to respond to what they hear and ask questions about the work. As this is a libretto workshop, no music will be performed. This workshop is FREE and open to the public. Due to the mature content of this opera, it is recommended that children under 13 not attend.
