Cimarron Opera Company To Present An Original Production at Area Metropolitan Libraries

 

Opera can be like an exotic food—you don’t know how tasty it is until you try it.

The Metropolitan Library System is giving everyone a chance to take a taste of opera and prepare for Halloween at the same time with “Cimarron Opera Presents: A Grimm Affair,” three short operas adapted from tales by the Brothers Grimm. 

“Cimarron Opera has combined familiar folk tales with great music and singing, with a touch of comedy,” said Metropolitan Library System Director of Outreach Services Dana Morrow, “to produce an introduction to opera that is a whole lot of fun.  This one is just too good to miss.  So please don’t.”

The permances are free and open to the public.  “A Grimm Affair” is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Metropolitan Library System, Oklahoma Arts Council, and the National Endowment For the Arts.
