Tulsa Opera will present a special performance in conjunction with the Philbrook exhibition Aphrodite and the Gods of Love on Saturday March 23, 2013, from 2 pm to 3:30 pm.
At the Statue of Venus and All Wounds Bleed are two short operas which will be performed by Tulsa Opera Studio Artists and guest performers. Both operas will be directed by Stanley M. Garner.
At the Statue of Venus, by Jake Heggie and Terrence McNally, the creators of Dead Man Walking, reveals a woman awaiting a blind date in a museum. Her thoughts and emotions are a jumble of hope and uncertainty, all while she lingers near a statue of the goddess of love.
In its first staged performance, All Wounds Bleed retells the passionate – and tragic – myth of Echo and Narcissus. Echo and Hera are both tortured in their mutual love of Zeus. Throw in a stolen Cupid’s arrowhead and a mortal who has sworn off love forever, and things get a little crazy on Olympus. All Wounds Bleed was written by composer Christopher Cerrone and librettist Tony Asaro.
Following the performances, there will be a Question & Answer session with Christopher Cerrone and Tony Asaro. Admission is $10 for members of Philbrook and $12 for non-members. Admission is taken at the door, or available online through Philbrook.
