From Ruby Bridges to Malala, Boko Haram to...your next-door neighbor?
2017 and 2018 seem to have marked a turning point in the rights of women. But of all the rights women have been denied around the world, denial of the right to education has been one of the root causes that have kept women from gaining true equality with men.
Excerpts from three prize-winning finalist works will be featured in this program, and performed by our Young Professional Artists. The winning work will be produced as a mainstage production during Pittsburgh Festival Opera's 2019 summer festival.
We are inviting you, our audience, to be a part of our process of selecting the winning opera. Join us and let your voice be heard!
