For 2023, Solo Opera presents, The Three Feathers, a magical chamber opera for families and children with music by award winning composer, Lori Laitman, and libretto by local poet laureate, Dana Gioia. Based on a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, the opera follows Princess Dora, not as a damsel in distress, but as a heroine. A magic feather leads the shy, self-doubting princess to an enchanted Underworld ruled by a giant Frog King. Here, she summons her courage and compassion to face a series of mysterious and comic adventures that change her life. Completing her quest, she saves her father’s kingdom from the plots of her selfish sisters and earns her right to the crown.
