@ The Center: Sister Carrie: A Workshop Performance
Wayne and Kristine Leuders Florentine Opera Center
926 E Burleigh St, Milwaukee, WI 53212
The Florentine presents a new opera by Robert Aldridge and Hershel Garfein. The composer and librettist of two-time Grammy Award-winning Elmer Gantry have adapted another classic American novel, Theodore Dreiser’s 1900 Sister Carrie. These talented artists bring the story of Caroline Meeber, a young woman from rural Wisconsin whose world changes fundamentally as she faces dilemmas of physical and spiritual survival when she moves to Chicago, to a new audience @ The Center. This workshop is made possible through the generous support of the Getty Foundation's Building Opera Audiences grant program and Opera America's The Opera Fund for Repertoire Development.
