August 13, 2012 by James
On Friday, August 24 and Saturday, August 25, the Bluegrass Opera ‘A Tree on the Plains’ will be performed at the Lexington Opera House located at 430 W. Vine Street in Lexington, Kentucky. This event begins at 7:30 pm on both evenings.
This opera tells the tale of a farm family located in western America that joins together with neighbors and friends to survive the challenges of drought, life, faith, and love. This opera has been classed as an American Classic and is rated ‘PG’ due to language content. Written by Joseph Barber, who spent many years in Japan and is a principle violist for the Tokyo Philharmonic, the book and lyrics were composed by Paul Hogan and the musical score was created by Ernst Bacon. Tickets for these two performances can be purchased through the theater box office or via Ticketmaster’s website.
The Bacon family and many other VIPs will be joining the cast and crew for the premier evening of this play. The official album will be recorded during the first night’s performance. The musical is sure to delight the audience and the highly-emotional play will no doubt have viewers switching from tears to laughter throughout.
Poster printing and brochure printing may have been used by the theater to advertise and promote this spectacular new opera to residents in the area. Tickets range from $15 to $25 per person depending on seating selection. For more information, please contact the Lexington Opera website or call the box office at 859-233-4567.
